The scholarship programs are open to both UQ Honours and Higher Degree Research (HDR) students for research at the University's Moreton Bay Research Station on North Stradbroke Island. Two rounds of scholarships are available every year - one round for research to commence in Semester 1 and another for research commencing in Semester 2. The deadline for Semester 1 applications is Monday, 5th March 2018.

This scholarship is designed to advance research programs that are not necessarily of direct benefit to local communities surrounding Moreton Bay, but that address questions of significance to the regional environment and scientific community. One scholarship for an Honours student and one scholarship for an HDR student are available. The scholarships provide in-kind accommodation, laboratory and boating use valued up to $1000 in a 12 month period at MBRS.
