The Scott Kimpton CUPSA grant for fieldwork has been created by Tiffany Forman (Scott’s wife) and Professor George Curry (Scott’s Supervisor) together with the founding members of the Postgraduate Open Door Society (PODS) and CUPSA (Curtin University Postgraduate Student Association) in honour and memory of the late Scott Kimpton, a postgraduate student in geography in the social sciences, a founding member of PODS and an active and generous supporter of our postgraduate community.

Beginning in 2010 a pool of $3,000 will be available each academic year, with a maximum value of $1,500 per successful applicant to assist eligible students undertaking fieldwork in developing countries. The intention of these grants is to provide additional financial support for Higher Degree by Research students to assist in buying materials/resources that are necessary for the successful completion of their field research. To be eligible, applicants must be enrolled in a Higher by Research degree (Masters, PhD or DCA) at Curtin University and be undertaking fieldwork research in a developing country as part of their studies and have completed candidacy.

Selection criteria will be based on how a research project benefits the community in which the fieldwork is being carried out and that fieldwork must be undertaken in a community within a developing country. If there is a tie the level of financial need will be taken into consideration.

The deadline for applications closes on 11 May 2012. There will be no extensions.
