NICM and Western Sydney University offers a range of project-based scholarships to support higher degree students in undertaking their research. Higher degree students may also be eligible for scholarships offered by other organisations.

The Research Training Program (RTP) (opens in a new window) scheme is administered by individual universities such as Western Sydney University on behalf of the Department of Education and Training.

We are now accepting applications from current and new students for higher degree research scholarships. Domestic and international students are invited to apply. Scholarships will be released periodically throughout the year, and each release has specified dates and residency requirements. You should choose when to submit your application based on your preferred commencement date and residency status.

Read more on how to apply for RTP or contact Professor Jerome Sarris NICM Deputy Director and Director of Research to discuss your project idea or find out more information.
