Applications for 2017 Postgraduate Scholarships for funding commencing in 2018 are now open. Postgraduate Scholarships fund successful applicants to obtain a research based postgraduate degree (PhD or Masters). The scheme aims to support outstanding health and medical graduates early in their career so they can be trained to conduct research that is internationally competitive and develop a capacity for original independent research within Australia.
Scholarships are awarded in a variety of categories. We would like to draw your attention to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Research Postgraduate Scholarship category which supports awardees to pursue research and training in areas of health with particular relevance to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
Scholarships are available in both a full-time and part-time capacity. Applications close 5pm AEST Wednesday 7 June 2017. All applications must be submitted online through RGMS.
