The Mito Foundation offers PhD Top-up Scholarships in an attempt to attract Australia’s best young scientists to the field of mitochondrial disease (mito). By encouraging scientists at the beginning of their career, the goal is that they will make their careers in mito research.
The Mito Foundation supports students by providing a flexible scholarship program. Recipients of these scholarships may investigate a range of different areas and all have one ultimate goal – to be part of the solution in finding a cure and effective treatment for mito.
