In my country a large portion of PhD students are funded by the APA (Australia Post Graduate Award).
I have a question about it's rules that I can't work out by just reading them (They are bound up into the federal government legislation that created the scholarship, and it is a bit legalise)
Would I be on topic?
I think perhaps it is off topic because, because it may be too localised? I know we don't offically have that reason anymore, but I suspect if I asked a question about a scholarship only available at my university, it would be closed or at least downvoted.
A National scholarship on the other hand could be useful.
I'm sure I can chase this information down by other means, like talking to the scholarships office at my univeristy. (Which I would do so, if I asked here and failed to get a answer -- and then make it a self answered question.) But having it online on this site would make it googleable for anyone else with the same question.
