Scholarships and prizes in the UTS Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences
Success is something to celebrate. In the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASS), we offer a range of scholarships and prizes to acknowledge our students’ outstanding achievements.
Scholarships available to students studying any FASS degree
Media Transition Doctoral Scholarship
UTS is offering scholarships to research the effects and implications of disruption and transition in the media sector. Students will work with the Centre for Media Transition, an interdisciplinary unit established to explore and develop responses to the dramatic and ongoing movements wrought by digital disruption to the media industry.
To encourage interdisciplinary research, the scholarships are being offered as a joint initiative of the Faculty of Law, the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology, and the Connected Intelligence Centre. Candidates will be enrolled through one of the faculties but will work on an interdisciplinary project. Candidates’ research topics need not directly across all these disciplines, but preference will be given to proposals that include elements from at least two disciplines.
The successful candidate will be awarded $27,000 per annum over 4 years. All scholarships at UTS are dependent upon ongoing satisfactory academic progress.
