Apr 18, 2022 | 4:08 pm

The International Think Tank for Landlocked Developing Countries (ITTLLDC) and the University of Wollongong (UOW) of Australia established a MOU to facilitate research collaboration and academic engagement in 2016. As part of this arrangement, in 2021 the ITTLLDC and the School of Business within the Faculty of Business and Law at UOW agreed to establish a Higher Degree Research (HDR) sponsorship program for scholars from landlocked developing countries.

The ITTLLDC and Business School offers a full sponsorship to two PhD students in 2021-2022, with a view to expanding the program to up to four students in the coming years.

UOW will sponsor successful applicants in the form of an International Postgraduate Tuition Award (IPTA), which is a tuition fee waiver, for the duration of their PhD candidature.

The successful candidate however will be fully responsible for his/her living expenses. The ITTLLDC will assist successful applicants in obtaining funding in the form of a stipend tenable (for living expenses) for the duration of their PhD candidature, which is up to 3.5 years.

The parties will jointly select HDR candidates to complete a PhD course within the Business School under the partnership of UOW and ITTLLDC.
