Brief Description

Research Training Program (RTP) Scholarships are provided by the Australian Government to support both domestic and international students undertaking Research Doctorate and Research Masters degrees.

As part of this program, an RTP Stipend (living allowance) is available to help support domestic and international students with living costs whilst studying at Monash.

The total scholarship value is up to $29,000


You must be one of the following:

  • An Australian citizen

  • A New Zealand citizen

  • Australian permanent resident

  • An International student

Priority will also be given to applicants who:

  • hold an Australian or New Zealand bachelor’s degree with First Class Honours (H1) or qualifications and/or research experience deemed equivalent by the University;

  • have not completed a graduate research masters or doctoral degree at the same course level (for example, are applying to undertake a second doctoral degree);

If your qualifications don’t meet the H1 level, your experience as a researcher could be considered equivalent.
