Are you looking to pursue a Masters or PhD degree in Australia? The Australian Government is offering scholarships for international and domestic students who wish to undertake research degrees. The Research Training Program (RTP) is a calendar year-based block grant that provides funding to participating universities in Australia to support students undertaking higher degrees by research (HDRs). The program replaced the International Postgraduate Research Scholarship (IPRS) on January 1, 2017.
The scholarship is available for both a Masters by research degree and a Doctorate Degree offered by participating universities in Australia. The scholarship provides the following types of support to an RTP Scholarship recipient: an RTP Fees Offset, an RTP Stipend, and RTP Allowances. The RTP Fees Offset pays the tuition fees for a higher degree by research students while the RTP Stipend assists students with their living costs while they are undertaking their research degree. The RTP Allowances help with relocation costs, thesis printing and academic publication expenses, and health cover costs for the student and their dependents.
The duration of the scholarship is a maximum of two years for a research master’s or a minimum of three years, up to a maximum of four years for a research doctorate. The application deadline varies per university but is around April-October each year. To apply, you must contact the participating university directly to discuss the selection process and how to apply for the RTP scheme.
If you are interested in applying for the scholarship, please visit the official website for detailed information on how to apply. This is a great opportunity to further your education and advance your career in Australia.
