These scholarships provide an opportunity for ECRs to facilitate their own research, mature their leadership capabilities and build their reputation both as a supervisor and a researcher.
In establishing their research careers, ECRs can find it difficult to secure research funding to support HDR candidates; these scholarships provide an opportunity for ECRs to supervise a fully funded HDR candidate.
These scholarships also fast track the ECR to being a principal HDR supervisor. The ECR must be the principal supervisor for the scholarship recognition but is required to have an experienced supervisor as supervisory mentor and co-supervisor for the candidate.
