UWS also provides a living allowance of A$22,860 per annum, indexed annually and paid fortnightly.

Tenure
The tenure of the award is three years for doctoral candidates and two years for Masters Honours (research masters) candidates.

Eligibility

Applicants for coursework awards are not eligible to apply, even where there is a research component in the degree. Students who have already commenced their research degree may not be eligible.
Current AusAID students are ineligible.
