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). IMAS was created to bring together the many strands of marine and Antarctic research currently being pursued in and around Hobart, to encourage the development of strengthened research links and exploit new research opportunities. 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.


Up to two scholarships will be offered to highly ranked students who have completed an undergraduate degree at UTAS or another Australian or international university and who plan to undertake an IMAS Honours course (K4B, K4F, S4G and S4E), commencing in Semester 1, 2014. A list of potential projects and supervisors, including ACE projects, is available at . More information on research conducted at ACE is available at
