College of Medicine and Public Health Honours Scholarship Rules

The College of Medicine and Public Health has established Honours Scholarships to provide financial assistance to undergraduate students undertaking an honours research project within the College.


Subject to the availability of funds, there will be two annual scholarships up to the value of $2,500 each.



Applicants must:

  • be an Australian citizen or permanent resident of Australia; and
  • be currently completing or have completed an appropriate undergraduate qualification; and
  • have as their principal supervisor a staff member of, or a holder of full academic status in, the College of Medicine and Public Health.



The scholarship is available for the normal duration of the honours year/fourth year program (one year full-time or two years part-time). A full-time student will receive payment in two instalments, one at the beginning of each semester.

A part-time student will receive a pro-rata payment at the beginning of each semester. Payments will be made subject to satisfactory progress. Scholarship payments will be withdrawn if the scholarship holder withdraws or is precluded from the course, and will not be available for a repeat year of study. Students may not hold any other Honours scholarship concurrently with a College of Medicine and Public Health Honours Scholarship.


Source of Funds

The scholarships are funded by the College of Medicine And Public Health.


The scholarships will be awarded on the basis of academic merit as measured by the Grade Point Average (GPA) for the most recent 36 units of study at third year level. Where rankings based on GPA are equal, students may be separated by the overall course GPA in years two and three of study. Selection will be made by a Selection Committee comprising the Honours Coordinators of the Director of Developing Researchers in the College of Medicine and Public Health.


Applications should be submitted online through the Flinders University Student System by the specified closing date.


The availability of the scholarships will be described on the University website.
