The awarding of a CRCNA PhD Scholarship is a merit-based process.  Applicants will be assessed on the quality of their application, previous experience and ability to meet the candidate expectations.

Existing PhD students  

In the instances where a research project has been received as part of the Expression of Interest funding call, the PhD student may be included in this plan to undertake some or all the research work. Students participating in these research collaborations are eligible to apply for CRCNA training and/or professional development bursaries when they become available, if they are not receiving CRCNA scholarship funding.

This includes PhD students currently working on projects funded in the 17/18 and 18/19 funding rounds.
