Applicants must indicate how the rest of their costs are to be met and provide evidence of financial support (e.g., from the university) if it is required.

Applications must include evidence of collaboration from i) a university of the student’s choosing, ii) a specified academic supervisor, and iii) an external third partner, such as a voluntary or work organisation, in which impact could occur.
