We invite Australia’s early career researchers to apply for one of two PhD top-up scholarships to the value of $45,000 over three years to support researchers aiming to improve lives of people with asthma.
Asthma Australia is dedicated to supporting upcoming researchers interested in the field of asthma. We want to work with the next generation of asthma researchers whose work will improve the lives of people with asthma.
We are therefore delighted to announce this opportunity for current or future PhD scholars to apply for funding to support their living or project expenses.
