Indigenous PhD Familiarisation Program
Supporting and guiding Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders interested in pursing a PhD at the University of Melbourne
If you are Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander and considering undertaking a PhD, the University of Melbourne hosts an annual Indigenous PhD Familiarisation Program which can offer the motivation you need to take that next step.
This fully-funded Program includes workshops and opportunities to help you prepare for commencing a PhD, introduces you to potential supervisors, guides you through the admissions process and provides an opportunity for you to develop networks with the next generation of Indigenous leadership.
Information on the inaugural 2015 Program is provided in the Report below, which includes a summary of the event, program highlights and outcomes and participant feedback. The 2015 Program’s schedule is also provided below, detailing each workshop’s summary and learning objectives.
The 2016 Program was held on 8 - 10 August 2016. A full report of the 2016 Program is available below.
