    Pros

    Stipend for PhD study along with university-waived fees. Not bad considering you are studying a degree

    Cons

    Very low wage, no taxation (so no HECS repayments or tax-deductible expenses). Extension is limited to 6 months (regardless of sick leave taken, it is inclusive).

    Advice to Management

    Change the scholarship to a base salary that pays minimum wage and includes tax; extension should be determined case-by-case and not include loss of work due to illness (as this is not experimental difficulty).
