Australian Government Stipend Scholarship and Research Training Program (RTP) 2022


With effect as of 1 January 2017, the Commonwealth Government's Research Training Program (RTP) offers financing to institutions to promote the research training of higher degree research (HDR) candidates from both home and abroad. 

Universities have the option to manage and grant a variety of stipend scholarships known as Australian Government Research Training Program (RTP) Scholarships thanks to the funds made available through the RTP. 

These prizes, which replace the funding made available through the Australian Postgraduate Awards (APA), are controlled by the Commonwealth Scholarship Guidelines (Research) 2017. (see Section 21 of these conditions for arrangements for continuing candidates previously supported by an Australian Postgraduate Award).

 Applicants with high research potential who are starting or enrolled in HDR programs for which RTP financing is available are given RTP Stipends by Griffith University. RTP Stipends are given to candidates to help with their normal living expenses; program tuition is not covered by them.
