Shah Rukh Khan is offering a doctoral scholarship at an Australian University.

La Trobe University has announced the opening of submissions for the Shah Rukh Khan La Trobe University PhD Scholarship.

The aim it adds, is to provide a life-changing opportunity for an aspiring female researcher from India to make a meaningful impact in the world.

The scholarship was launched earlier this month by SRK during a recent trip to Australia.

The selected candidate will be supported with a four-year research scholarship valued in excess of $200,000 (AUD) to be completed at La Trobe’s facilities in Melbourne, Australia.

They will undertake research in either health, sport, information technology, cyber security or engineering.

During his visit, Shah Rukh also received an honorary doctorate from the University for his contributions and efforts towards underprivileged children and women’s empowerment through Meer Foundation.
