Financial assistance to help you focus on your career.

Honours isn’t the time to be worried about income, it’s the time to focus on science. You could be provided with a $2,000 stipend to help you focus on what’s really important in this critical stage of your education. Larger amounts may be available for projects undertaken with industry partners.

A prestigious award to help you stand out from the crowd.

Get your career off to a running start through a discipline-specific award, showing future employers and grant agencies that you’ve got what it takes to succeed in one of the most competitive careers.


To be eligible, you must nominate a supervisor and host laboratory located in the Chemistry (68) or Molecular Biosciences (76) Building in The University of Queensland's School of Chemistry and Molecular Biosciences (SCMB), for enrolment in the BSc(Hons),  BAdvSc(Hons), or BBiotech(Hons) program.

The offer of scholarship is conditional upon maintenance of your GPA above 6 in your last semester.

Selection will be based on:

  • Cumulative Grade Point Average
