HDR Fee Remission Merit Scholarship: International recipients will also be awarded an HDR Fee Remission Merit Scholarship, to cover the International Student Fees for the standard duration of the Higher Degree Research (HDR) program, subject to the recipient being ranked as competitive in a merit-based selection process.
Relocation Reimbursement: A reimbursement may be claimed as a one-off payment to recipients, to assist with relocation costs, including those in respect of the recipient's spouse, de facto partner, and dependent child or children, incurred in commencing their HDR program. Where a claim for a relocation reimbursement is in respect of a recipient's spouse, de facto partner, or dependent child or children, they must accompany the recipient to Canberra, or join the recipient in Canberra within 12 months of the recipient commencing their HDR program. Recipients who are resident outside the Australian Capital Territory or who are permanently resident outside Australia at the time of application are eligible to receive a one-off relocation reimbursement, capped at a maximum of $1,000 for Domestic students, or $2,500 for International students, towards the costs of moving to Canberra to take up their eligible HDR program.
Thesis Reimbursement: Reimbursements are paid to recipients of the Award to assist with ancillary costs while undertaking an eligible HDR program. Recipients receive a one-off reimbursement of up to $500 for services associated with the production of their thesis.
