  • Culture and Loss
  • Environmental Justice and Governance
  • Food Systems
  • Oceans and Water
  • Sustainable Materialism

The scholarships, which will run for up to 3 years, are equivalent to the minimum RTP stipend and will provide financial assistance to PhD students who either have an unconditional offer of admission from the University of Sydney, or are already enrolled in full-time postgraduate studies. Applicants must also hold at least one of the following:

  • Masters degree at high academic standard (e.g. conferred with Distinction) with a substantial research component, or
  • equivalent qualification in a discipline with significant environmental or sustainability focus.

More specific information and application details may be found on the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences scholarship page. Applicants are also warmly invited to contact our Director, Professor David Schlosberg, at for more information.
