Marine and Antarctic Studies Honours & Masters Scholarship

These scholarships are funded by the University's Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies (IMAS) and by the Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems Cooperative Research Centre (ACE-CRC).

Research at IMAS is conducted across five integrated multidisciplinary research areas, with a particular focus on the cool temperate and cold marine environment from Tasmania south to Antarctica: Climate & Oceans, Fisheries & Aquaculture, Marine Ecology & Biodiversity, Integrated Ocean-Earth System Science, Ocean & Antarctic Policy, Socio-economics and Governance.
