Anthony Smith Award in Sexuality Studies

Applications are now open for the Professor Anthony Smith Conference Attendance Award. This award is a competitive award for financial assistance for full-time doctoral candidates working in sexuality studies to attend a conference related to their research.


The University established the Professor Anthony Smith Conference Attendance Award to honour the memory of Professor Smith, who passed away in 2012. The award will assist full-time, outstanding, PhD students carrying out sexuality related research to attend and present papers at international conferences.

Professor Smith was a foundation member of the Australian Centre for Health, Sex and Society. He published more than 300 articles and presentations, directed major research projects and became a scholar of international repute. He is best known as the creator and chief investigator of Australia's first major study into health and relationships – The Australian Study of Health and Relationships (the Australian 'Kinsey' as it is sometimes known).


This scholarship is open to students who:

  • are enrolled in a PhD or professional doctorate
  • can demonstrate outstanding merit through the progress of their studies
  • can demonstrate the benefits of the conference attendance to their research
  • are working in the area of sexuality.
