The Centre for Humanitarian Leadership is dedicated to making positive social impact and is committed to raising funds for scholarships and research in humanitarian leadership.
Practitioners and Researchers
Higher Degree Research (HDR) project proposals from suitably qualified academics, practitioners and higher-degree research students with a keen interest in contributing to leading-edge research in the humanitarian sector.
Proposals should relate to the CHL’s thematic research area of humanitarian leadership. This is understood in a broad sense incorporating people, organisations and systems.
Research proposals that focus on leading more effectively through improving systems, human factors or technology are particularly encouraged, as are those with a focus on improving humanitarian response in the Asia-Pacific region.
Applications are open to individuals who meet Deakin University’s HDR entry requirements and who are eligible to study in Australia or apply for a student visa.
More information regarding eligibility to study at Deakin University as a higher degree research student is available at the Deakin website.
There are a limited number of research scholarships available and depend on the research topic, funding source and other eligibility criteria.
The ASEAN countries are committed to women’s empowerment and recognise the pivotal role women’s leadership plays in improving inclusive and well targeted humanitarian action. Australia, through ASEAN-Australia Council Women in Humanitarian Leadership Scholarship Fund, will provide ten scholarships that will contribute to or cover full course fees, to be awarded to emerging women leaders from ASEAN countries accepted into the Centre for Humanitarian Leadership’s Graduate Certificate of Humanitarian Leadership. To apply, head to the Graduate Certificate of Humanitarian Leadership page.
Part scholarships are available for the Graduate Certificate of Humanitarian Leadership. Scholarships are provided on a tiered basis, with students locally employed in target countries receiving the largest scholarships. Full details of the scholarships are provided at the time we recruit for each new intake.
