Value and Duration: It is expected that successful COCA Research Ltd Scholarship recipients will apply for a Scholarship from nationally competitive sources (for example, APA, NHMRC) in the first year of their Scholarship program. If the applicant is successful in receiving a nationally competitive Scholarship, the full COCA Research Ltd Scholarship will cease but COCA Research Ltd will offer a top-up of $5000/year. If the applicant applies for the COCA Research Ltd Scholarship when they are already a recipient of a nationally competitive Scholarship (e.g. APA, NHMRC) they may apply for a top-up of $5,000/year, however this will only be available if a full Scholarship is not awarded to another recipient in the same year.

This Scholarship will be paid to the recipient’s Administering Institution in quarterly instalments.
