The AF Pillow Applied Mathematics Trust offers an annual top-up scholarship to a student holding either an Australian Postgraduate Award (APA) or equivalent award for full-time research in applied mathematics leading to the award of a PhD. The aim of the scholarship is to increase the quantity and quality of postgraduate students in the field of applied mathematics in Australia.
The scholarship is open to prospective or current PhD students in a field of applied mathematics at an Australian university and resident within Australia for the duration of the PhD candidature. Prospective PhD candidates holding or applying for an APA or equivalent award with strong undergraduate academic training in the field of applied mathematics are eligible to apply. Applicants will ordinarily be completing their honours degree, although current PhD students who have completed no more than 6 months of their PhD candidature at the application closure date are also encouraged to apply.
Scholarship holders are required to attend the annual Australian and New Zealand Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (ANZIAM) conference to present the findings of their research.
The scholarship provides a stipend of $10,000 per year to supplement a basic postgraduate scholarship. An allowance of $1,500 per year is also available for reasonable expenses incurred for economy airfares and registration fees to attend the ANZIAM national annual conference.
