Title
UWA Safety Net Top-Up Scholarships
Description

UWA Safety-Net Top-Up Scholarships may be awarded in conjunction with Australian Postgraduate Awards (APA) and University Postgraduate Awards (UPA), providing an attractive total scholarship package of $29,000 per annum in 2017.

The APA stipend will be adjusted annually in line with the Commonwealth Department of Education indexation. The value of the UWA Safety-Net Top-Up Scholarship is at the discretion of the UWA Scholarships Committee and will also be adjusted each year, reducing as the APA increases.  

The Safety-Net Top-Up program will be discontinued when the value of the APA reaches or exceeds $29 000 per year.

Available in the 2017 Australian/University Postgraduate Awards Round

Eligibility

Please note that the UWA Scholarships Committee has recently changed the eligibility criteria for these scholarships.

From August 2014, the UWA Safety-Net Top-Up is provided to students who receive APAs or UPAs and who do not receive other top-ups of more than $5000 per year.

Current UWA Safety-Net Top-Up Scholarship holders who commenced their awards before August 2014 are grandfathered under the previous conditions and will be permitted to retain their Safety-Net Top-Ups provided that they do not hold other top-up scholarships of more than $10,000 per annum.
