Australian Government Research Training Program Scholarship at Charles Darwin University

Australian Government Research Training Program Scholarship at Charles Darwin University is announced for applications and you may see the detail requirements and prepare for the application.





INTRODUCTION

The Higher Degree by Research Scholarships to be awarded are: Australian Postgraduate Awards (APA), University Postgraduate Research Scholarships (UPRS) and International Postgraduate Research Scholarships (IPRS). APA and IPRS are funded by Australian Government, while the University funds the UPRS.

The University is required to rank applicants in order of academic merit taking into account the eligibility criteria applying to each award program. The University establishes its own ranking policy and procedures that comply with the Australian Government APA and IPRS funding rules and with the relevant University strategies. In most cases, the application for HDR scholarship is submitted alongside an application for admission to an HDR program.

Australian Government Research Training Program Scholarship at Charles Darwin University

The Commonwealth Government’s Research Training Program (RTP) provides funding to universities to support the research training of both domestic and international higher degree research (HDR) candidates.

The funding provided through the RTP offers the provision for universities to administer and award a number of scholarships known as Australian Government Research Training Program (RTP) Scholarships.

These awards are governed by the Research Training Program (RTP) and University Research Training Scheme (URTS) Scholarship Policy  and replace the support provided through the Australian Postgraduate Awards (APA).

Australian Government RTP Stipend Scholarships

Australian Government RTP Stipend Scholarships are awarded to students of exceptional research potential to undertake a HDR at an Australian university. The scholarships are provided to assist with general living costs.

The Australian Government RTP Stipend Scholarship provides an indexed stipend – paid fortnightly – of $27,596 (2019 rate) per annum. Additional benefits include paid sick leave, maternity leave and relocation allowance. The relocation allowance for RTP stipend recipients is up to $2,000 for domestic students and up to $2,500 for international students.

Australian Government RTP Domestic Fee Offset

The funding provided by the Commonwealth enables Charles Darwin University to provide tuition fee offsets to domestic candidates commencing or enrolled in HDR programs for which Australian Government RTP support is available.

The support provided through the Australian Government RTP Domestic Fee Offset replaces the Commonwealth Government’s Research Training Scheme (RTS).





Australian Government RTP eligibility requirements

  • To be eligible for a RTP scholarship, a student must be a domestic student or an overseas student enrolled in an accredited HDR course of study at an Australian Higher Education Provider (HEP);
  • To be eligible for a RTP stipend a student must not be receiving income from another source to support that student’s general living costs while undertaking their course of study if that income is greater than 75% of that student’s RTP stipend rate. Income unrelated to the student’s course of study or income received for the student’s course of study but not for the purpose of supporting general living costs is not taken into account.
  • To be eligible for a RTP fee offset, a student must not be receiving an equivalent award or scholarship from the Australian Government designed to offset HDR tuition fees.

Award of RTP Fee Offset and URTS Fee Offset

  • An RTP Fee Offset scholarship fully extinguishes the student’s tuition liability for the year in which is it awarded.
  • A URTS Fee Offset scholarship may fully or partially extinguish the student’s tuition liability for the year in which it is awarded. The Deputy Vice-Chancellor Research and Research Training is delegated to determine the amount of a URTS Fee Offset.
  • Eligible domestic HDR students are automatically awarded a RTP Fee Offset.
  • Overseas HDR students awarded an RTP Stipend are automatically awarded a URTS Fee Offset scholarship.
  • Overseas HDR students who are not awarded an RTP Stipend may be awarded a URTS Fee Offset by the competitive process set out in the HDR Scholarship Eligibility and Ranking Procedures.
