Top Up Grants

Top Up grants are provided to help bridge the gap between the NHMRC Biomedical and Public Health Stipend and a scholarship awarded to a PhD student. Top Up grants are funded by the Westmead Medical Research Foundation from donations made by members of the community and by the Westmead Institute.

Fulltime PhD students at the Westmead Institute who are actively engaged in completing their degree are eligible if they receive a competitive scholarship from the Commonwealth Government, eg Australian Postgraduate Award (APA), the University of Sydney, eg University Postgraduate Award (UPA), industry or other funding body.
