Ian Gould Experimental Science Grant

University of South Australia

The Ian Gould Experimental Science Honours Scholarship has been established via a personal gift from Dr Ian Gould, Chancellor of the University of South Australia. The scholarship aims to encourage and support students to undertake 'hands on' research in an honours year, where the student proposes to engage actively in experimental work and collect and analyse their own data for thesis work in any area of science, including the social sciences.


Applicants must: be enrolled full-time in their second or third year in a science or social science discipline at the University of South Australia. Applicants are required to submit a personal written statement detailing how the funds will be used to support their experimental research. Selection is based on academic merit, research thesis proposal, a reference from the research supervisor, and interview performance.
