Scholarship Benefits

  • The RTP Stipend Scholarship offers a stipend for living expenses, disbursed biweekly to beneficiaries via the University’s payment system.
  • National scholars granted an RTP Stipend Scholarship will concurrently receive an RTP Fees Offset Scholarship, covering their entire tuition for the Offset Scholarship’s duration.


To qualify for an RTP Scholarship, applicants must be either domestic or international students enrolled in a recognized RHD program at CQUniversity.

A candidate must ensure that their income from alternate sources does not exceed 75% of the RTP Stipend rate to be eligible for an RTP Stipend, as this income is intended to support living expenses during their studies. Income that is not related to the candidate’s study, or that is for study but not for living costs, is not considered.

Candidates must not have an equivalent Commonwealth award or scholarship intended to cover RHD tuition fees to be eligible for an RTP Fees Offset.

How to apply

Direct applications for RTP Scholarships are not accepted. Interested individuals should converse with their supervisory team regarding the RHD Scholarship. The School of Graduate Research will extend invitations to apply to prospective candidates upon the recommendation of their supervisory team.

Notification of scholarship awards will be conveyed to applicants via email.
