PhD Scholarship – regional economic development, innovation and entrepreneurship

The University of Tasmania and the Cradle Coast Authority have partnered to offer a new scholarship for research into the challenges and opportunities associated with regional economic development, innovation and entrepreneurship. The scholarship provides funding of $105,000 over three years for a PhD candidate to be embedded within the Cradle Coast Authority, working on a project of regional significance that feeds into the Regional Futures Plan.

The Regional Futures Plan, led by the Cradle Coast Authority and its Member Councils, provides the blueprint for an ambitious new approach to economic development and is supported by all levels of government, industry and the education sector. Further details, including application information, will be available soon. In the meantime, please email with your request, if you would like to be notified when those details are available.

All selection decisions are based on merit only.
