Being a PhD student can be difficult – low pay, bills, and little time for anything else. The scholarship is to help you with the financial burden, so you have more time to PhD!
This year's scholarship is $500, which has been generously donated by Scrintal. They are also offering the recipient access to their transcription service for their PhD.
Scrintal is a visual notebook that amplifies the research process and literature reviews. With Scrintal, researchers and PhD students can visually organise their knowledge (PDFs, images, web content and even transcribe audio & video) and connect all the key parts. So they can easily find insights to improve the quality of their articles, PhD theses to get cited and published and more.
Scrintal's user-friendly tags and infinite canvas simplifies the qualitative coding of literature, interviews and media, while providing a unified visual space for all findings. Scrintal is developed by a PhD student and a community of researchers to make research joyful and intuitive.
