The Australian Government Research Training Program (RTP) Scholarship scheme is funded by the Australian Government and provides tuition fees to top quality international postgraduate students who wish to enrol in a research degree at Australian universities. This scheme replaces the International Postgraduate Research Scheme. The RTP Fee Offset and Stipend Scholarship is very competitive and awarded to approximately 30 students each year. Applications are assessed on academic merit and research potential. In addition to the RTP Fee Scholarship, the University of Sydney awards an RTP Stipend Scholarship to all International RTP Fee Scholarship recipients. This provides a stipend/living allowance.
Those under consideration for an RTP Fee Scholarship will automatically be considered for a University of Sydney International Scholarship, which also covers tuition fees and provides a stipend. Neither of these awards requires a separate application.Eligibility for the scholarship is based on a student's course application.
