Annual Honours Research Essay Kinsman Studentship and Kinsman Prize

University of Melbourne, The

The aim of this scholarship is to encourage honours students to develop their research essay so that it can be published in a refereed journal. Some essays require additional analysis, collection of additional data, or the refinement of the conceptual framework, while others may require rewrites. An additional objective of the scheme is to further develop the student's research skills and increase the possibility that the student may choose to undertake a research-based postgraduate degree. The scholarship requires the student to work jointly with a supervisor/advisor.


Applicants must: be Honours students in the Faculty of Business and Economics who have completed a research essay that is suitable for publication. Selection is based on the quality of the research essay and the potential for the essay to result in a publishable paper.
