The National Centre for Epidemiology and Population Health (NCEPH) offers undergraduate students opportunities to apply for scholarships to study towards honours degrees at ANU in areas related to the research at NCEPH. There are many factors that affect the health of human populations apart from clinical care. The natural and built environments, genetic endowments, socioeconomic status, diet, way of life, the organisation and funding of health services are some of these factors. Population health involves the scientific study of these factors. The complexity of the study of population health demands a multi-disciplinary approach. NCEPH is a multi-disciplinary research centre committed to furthering understanding of the determinants of population health. Built upon the disciplines of epidemiology, biostatistics, economics, demography and sociology, it undertakes research and trains researchers at the forefront of inquiry into population health.

NCEPH HoNours sCHolarsHiPs
Each year, the National Centre for Epidemiology and Population Health awards a number of Honours Scholarships. The scholarship program is conducted jointly by arrangement between NCEPH and the Faculty of Arts, Faculty of Science and the ANU College of Business and Economics. Each scholarship is worth up to A$5,000. There is an additional allowance of A$4,500 for those successful applicants who have transferred their enrolment to this University for the Honours Year.
