Re-entry scholarships

Description

As a contribution to reducing the imbalance between the numbers of male and female research scholars, the University has, since 1988, offered Postdoctoral Fellowships for women wishing to resume a research career after a significant break since achievement of their last academic award. Such breaks are typically caused by family obligations (for example, child bearing, child rearing, care of aged relations or substantial disruption through family relocation).

dc.description.abstractAs a contribution to reducing the imbalance between the numbers of male and female research scholars, the University has, since 1988, offered Postdoctoral Fellowships for women wishing to resume a research career after a significant break since achievement of their last academic award. Such breaks are typically caused by family obligations (for example, child bearing, child rearing, care of aged relations or substantial disruption through family relocation). The area of proposed research in such Postdoctoral Fellowships must be relevant to work currently being undertaken within the University and preference is given to the national priority areas of science, technology or engineering. The Postdoctoral Fellowships were administered, until 1992, by a Re-entry Fellowships Committee. Due to the postdoctoral re-entry scheme only attracting small numbers of applicants of appointable quality, it was suggested that it be extended to cover re-entrants wishing to enrol in higher degree courses.
