Australian Government Research Training Program (AGRTP) Domestic Fee Offset Scholarship

Overview

Each year the Commonwealth Department of Education and Training provides funding to Universities to award scholarships to students undertaking Higher Degree Research programs.

From 1 January 2017, the Australian Government is replacing the Research Training Scheme (RTS) with a single program, the Australian Government Research Training Program (AGRTP or RTP).  As current support programs are not continuing beyond 1 January 2017, the University is required by legislation to transfer all RTS recipients to the new Australian Government Research Training Program Domestic Fee Offset Scholarship.

Eligibility

Domestic students automatically receive a RTP Domestic Fee Offset scholarship when admitted to an eligible HDR program at the University. 

Benefits

The Australian Government Research Training Program Domestic Fee Offset Scholarship covers tuition fees for 4 years.
