In accordance with the Commonwealth Scholarship Guidelines (Research) 2017, to be eligible for a RTP Scholarship a candidate must be a domestic candidate or an overseas candidate enrolled in an accredited RHD course of study at CQUniversity.
To be eligible for an RTP Stipend a candidate must not be receiving income from another source to support the candidate’s general living costs while undertaking their course of study if that income is greater than 75 per cent of the candidate’s RTP Stipend rate. Income unrelated to the candidate’s course of study or income received for the candidate’s course of study but not for the purposes of supporting general living costs is not taken into account.
To be eligible for a RTP Fees Offset a candidate must not be receiving an equivalent award of scholarship from the Commonwealth designed to offset RHD tuition fees.
This is a merit-based Scholarship. A Scholarship Assessment Scale using three categories of performance will be used to inform the allocation of scholarships to eligible applicants, as follows:
- Academic achievement and writing skills (0-20 points)
- Quality of research project and alignment with CQUniversity research priority areas (0-15 points)
- Evidence of motivation, research experience and research environment (0-15 points)
Please view the Research Training Program and Research Higher Degree Scholarships Policy and Procedure available (by searching the policy name) at our Policy page for more information.
The RTP Stipend Scholarship provides a living allowance stipend which is paid fortnightly to the recipient through the University's payroll system.
Domestic students who are awarded an RTP Stipend Scholarship will also be offered an RTP Fees Offset Scholarship*, which fully extinguishes the candidate's tuition liability for the period of the Offset Scholarship.
* A separate application for an RTP Fees Offset Scholarship is not required.
Applications must include all necessary supporting documents. Incomplete applications will not be considered. Applicants will need to supply the following supporting documentation:
- Written submission
