The University of Western Australia is inviting applications for the iCardio PhD Scholarship for International Students for the 2020/2021 academic session.
This scholarship is for a PhD student to undertake a research study at the University of Western Australia, in partnership with Liverpool John Moores University, UK to explore how advanced exercise physiologists could help to prevent cardiovascular disease in the UK through assessment, physical activity intervention, and behavior change.
The University was established due largely to the efforts of Sir John Winthrop Hackett, who had a long-standing vision and passion to provide Western Australia with a university. Proprietor and editor of The West Australian newspaper, he chaired a Royal Commission which recommended the establishment of a university. Later he was the founding Chancellor and bequeathed more than £425,000 (the equivalent of more than $32 million today) to the University.
