RANZCP Foundation launches new PhD scholarship

A new scholarship designed to support and encourage psychiatrists to undertake PhD research is now available for Australian and New Zealand RANZCP members.

Thanks to the generosity of Fellow Dr Roth Trisno and family, the RANZCP Foundation is delighted to announce the opening of applications for the inaugural the Trisno Family PhD Research Scholarship.

Up to A$60,000 in scholarship funding is available to provide research and stipend support for up to two years. The scholarship is not limited to any specific sub-specialty or focus area of psychiatric research, and will be offered every two years going forward. 

‘We are excited to launch the Trisno Family PhD Research Scholarship, which is the first scholarship of its kind to be offered by the College,’ said Professor Malcolm Hopwood, Chair of the RANZCP Foundation. ‘The establishment of this scholarship is a terrific example of how RANZCP members can make a positive impact for psychiatry through philanthropy’ .

‘The Trisno Family PhD scholarship is a valuable new initiative for psychiatry research,’ said Professor Dan Siskind, Chair of the Committee for Research. ‘Not only will it allow psychiatrists and trainee psychiatrists to pursue their research ambitions, but it will also be crucial in developing and strengthening academic psychiatry more broadly’ .

The RANZCP Foundation extends its sincere thanks the Dr Roth Trisno and the Trisno Family for their generous donation and commitment to advancing research in psychiatry.

Applications are now open until Monday 21 November 2022.
