PhD Research Sponsorship


SIMUL8 Corporation sponsors PhD Research work that is of direct relevance to our research and development needs. Your research needs to be focused on something that will move the simulation industry forward directly.



To apply for this funding you need to:

  • Have made a decision on a research topic and it is relevant to moving the simulation industry forward.
  • Have a College and PhD Supervisor interested in hosting the research.
  • Agree to publish the results of your research in conjunction with your academic supervisor, even if you do not complete your PhD.
  • Have investigated joint-funding opportunities (These schemes are given higher priority).
  • Have a significant understanding of simulation (from a first or post graduate degree in a field such as Operations Research).
  • Have programming skills (it is unlikely that you can do practical simulation research without this).
  • Agree that results and ideas from research sponsored by SIMUL8 Corporation may be used by SIMUL8 Corporation in any way.

About the Sponsorship Scheme


What you get

SIMUL8 Corporation fund all PhD costs including enrollment and tuition fees and living expenses. Students can apply for funding under this scheme at any time. There is no schedule or deadline. Once we have your application we will tell you when it will be considered, this will depend on current demand.

How it works

We do not place any restriction on what students can publish in academic publications from research in conjunction with SIMUL8 Corporation. We actively encourage such publication because it is beneficial for the simulation community. However, we reserve the right to restrict, at the time of actual data collection, sensitive content or the outcomes of specific meetings.

What we ask from you

Students accepted to the program must agree that research conducted in conjunction with SIMUL8 Corporation, may be used by SIMUL8 Corporation in any way including for commercial purposes. SIMUL8 Corporation will always endeavor to acknowledge student’s work, for example by reference to the original publication, but cannot guarantee to do so.

If SIMUL8 Corporation sponsor your research, we offer many additional resources, including access to our development and research team, who work with our research students to help in any way they can.
