In recognition of an outstanding thesis, at least three Graduate Research School Board Members must nominate the thesis for an Honourable Mention in the Board of the Graduate Research School Dean's List. The nominations are considered by the Board for consideration.
The Graduate Research School makes annual awards of Prizes for Higher Degree by Research Achievements. Each year, six prizes of $500 each are offered for the best work accepted for publication by an enrolled HDR student from any discipline. Queries should be directed to Dr Michael Azariadis, Graduate Education Officer.
To be eligible for a Publication Prize, a candidate must have been enrolled at UWA in a PhD, Professional Doctorate, or Master's by Research degree at the time the work was prepared and submitted for publication (in the case of work accepted for publication) or completed, displayed or performed (in the case of creative work).
Four copies of each application must be submitted to the Graduate Research School. The applications in each category are assessed by a panel of senior academic staff, representing a range of disciplines relevant to the work submitted.
