The University of South Australia is inviting applications for the Research Training Program international (RTPi) Scholarships in the 2019/20 academic year.
Research Training Program international (RTPi) Scholarships are funded by the Australian Government and awarded to international candidates on the basis of academic merit and research potential.
From 1 January 2017 the Research Training Program (RTP) has replaced Australian Postgraduate Awards (APA), International Postgraduate Research Scholarships (IPRS) and the Research Training Scheme (RTS). Students that were previously in receipt of these scholarships have been changed to the appropriate RTP Scholarship, effective from 1 January 2017. All benefits and conditions remain the same.
The RTP provides block grants to the University on a yearly basis, which are used to support domestic and international students undertaking a higher degree by research.
