HDR Scholarship application ranking process
Applications for HDR scholarships as part of the Mid-year and Annual Scholarship Rounds at Griffith University are firstly processed within the Griffith Graduate Research School (GGRS). It is at this point that applications are initially reviewed for eligibility for entry into Griffith HDR programs.
Following this initial review, applications are then forwarded to the appropriate schools, departments or research centres for academic staff to assess applications for both entry into Griffith HDR programs, and for consideration for a scholarship. All applications are then assessed by the Dean (Research) of the relevant Group and the Dean, Griffith Graduate Research School, to arrive at an outcome against the selection criteria.
Applications that are recognised as meeting the selection criteria requirements for scholarship consideration are then assessed and ranked in an order of merit, in the proposed host school, department, research centre, and academic group. The order of merit is based on the Higher Degree Research Scholarship Policy and takes into consideration:
- Academic merit, with emphasis on the results attained in the qualification with the substantial research component but also taking into account the grades of any other eligible qualification, as applicable.
- The international standing of the institution at which the qualification with the substantial research component was completed.
- Research background, including:
- The quality of the eligible research outputs included as evidence in an application, as well as the applicant's contribution to these outputs.
- The level and duration of sustained research experience and evidence of how the research activity undertaken bears upon and enhances the applicant's research capacity, with regard to the proposed research.
- The compatibility/fit of the proposed research with university/academic group research priorities, and
- The compatibility/fit between the applicant, research environment, and supervision.
The University's Higher Degree Research Scholarship Ranking Committee meets to establish a university-wide Order of Merit List. Through this process, scholarships are awarded to the highest ranking applicants in this university-wide Order of Merit.
