Research Training Program Scholarships

As of 1st January 2017, the Department of Education and Training launched a Research Training Program (RTP) to support domestic and international students undertaking Higher Degrees in Research. RTP replaces the Australian Postgraduate Awards (APA), the International Postgraduate Research Scholarships (IPRS) and Research Training Scheme.

Due to this new government legislation, our scholarships policy is under review and will be released in June 2017.
Further information on RTP scholarships is available on the government website and frequently asked questions for students is available at
