In any given year, one in seven Australian children experience a mental health problem. Most young people never receive evidence-based treatments and many young people do not respond to current interventions or relapse over time.
Griffith Health are investing in the future of health research with higher degree by research scholarships.
Griffith's School of Applied Psychology is placing research priority in the area of Child and Youth Mental Health - specifically, the development of mental health interventions that can reach young people where they are, and improve clinical outcomes for children and adolescents.
The scholarship value is $28,597 (indexed) for a period of 3 years full time study.
These scholarships are open to domestic and international applicants*.
Applicants must have completed, or expect to complete, a Bachelors degree with honours (Class I) or a Masters degree (AQF Level 9) incorporating a substantial research component of a standard comparable to a Bachelor honours degree (Class I) or be regarded by Griffith University as having an equivalent level of attainment. Applicants who have completed a Bachelors degree with honours (Class IIA) or a Masters degree of a comparable standard together with research experience and/or research outputs (e.g. published research papers or been awarded research funding) will be considered.
Early career health and industry professionals interested in returning to higher degree studies (full-time) are strongly encouraged to apply.
