Funding from the charitable organisation CanDo4Kids/Townsend House of SA has enabled Flinders University to establish a CanDo4Kids PhD Scholarship. The purpose of this scholarship is to enable suitably qualified graduates to carry out research leading to a PhD in the area of auditory processing disorder (APD) in children.

CanDo4Kids, South Australia’s oldest charity, works directly with children and young people with sensory disabilities of hearing and/or vision. In the past three years CanDoForKids has provided substantial annual funding to Flinders University and Flinders Medical Centre (which have a joint Department of Speech Pathology and Audiology) for a public clinical service in auditory processing in children. The primary focus of the specialist Auditory Processing Clinic is diagnostic work. CanDoForKids also offers therapy for children diagnosed with APD at its institutional base in suburban Adelaide.

CanDoForKids wishes to support PhD students in research in two areas: outcomes for children and their families following the diagnosis of APD and outcomes as a result of therapy/interventions. APD is receiving increasing recognition as a significant disorder, not only of childhood, which typically affects the development of communication skills and impedes academic success. Few studies have addressed the important issue of outcomes for this disorder generally and the outcomes of specific interventions. There are a number of possible PhD projects within the outcomes focus of the research and it is expected that they will be able to be addressed by both qualitative and quantitative methodologies.

The scholarship will provide an indexed stipend of $29,753 pa tax-free (2008 rate), includes a Research Training Scheme place, which provides an exemption from tuition fees, and generous allowances and leave provisions, including the possibility of a limited period of private practice.  The CanDo4Kids PhD Scholarship is tenable at Flinders University for up to three years subject to satisfactory progress, with the possibility of a six month extension.

The scholarship is available for candidates with a background in audiology or speech pathology. Graduates from other relevant disciplines such as psychology or linguistics will also be considered.

This scholarship will only be available to those who:  are Australian citizens or permanent residents of Australia;  and have completed at least four years of tertiary education studies at a high level of achievement and have an appropriate Honours 1 or high 2A (or equivalent) undergraduate degree; and are enrolling as full-time students; and will commence a PhD by research. The scholarships will not be available to applicants who:  are receiving another scholarship or salary to undertake the proposed program; or have already completed a higher degree at the same level as the proposed candidature, or at a higher level.

Application kits can be obtained from the Higher Degree Administration and Scholarships Office and can be downloaded from the scholarships website.

Intending applicants should enclose with their application, a covering letter indicating that they wish to be considered for this scholarship.
