Indigenous students are encouraged to apply for Indigenous Postgraduate Research Supplementary Scholarships.
Forrest Foundation scholarships
All international and Australian students who wish to study towards the degree of Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) at The University of Western Australia may apply for Forrest Scholarships.
New collaboration to help fight growing herbicide resistance
Researchers at The University of Western Australia have teamed up with Queensland-based plant healthcare company Nexgen Plants to help combat Australia’s growing herbicide resistance problem. Associate Professor Joshua Mylne from UWA’s School of Molecular Sciences said the partnership would enable the development of innovative new solutions and discovery of more effective herbicide target proteins.Read more
Herbicide Discovery & Development
Thanks to genetic resistance to many of the most popular herbicides, the need for new ones is greater than ever. Come help be part of the solution!Read more
