RMIT PhD Scholarships are funded by RMIT University and are awarded to individuals undertaking a research Doctoral degree on the basis of academic excellence and research potential. All award holders are allocated a government funded Research Training Scheme (RTS) place.

PhD scholarships will be offered in areas of our research strength aligned with the themes of RMIT’s Research Institutes. Applicants must ensure their proposed research is aligned to one of the themes within the Research Institutes.

The four Institutes, launched from 2007, will focus on:

Global Cities (processes of globalization, climate change and sustainability in the urban context)
Health Innovations (including, lifestyle approaches to sustainable health, electromagnetic fields: bioeffects and therapeutic advances, Chinese medicine, and evidence-based health policy and practice)
Platform Technologies (including nano materials and devices, security and safety and intelligent industrial information technologies)
Design (including customising space, rapid manufacture, urban livability)
A listing of the research themes of each Institute can be accessed from the RMIT page. Specific projects are listed on the Research Institutes PhD projects page.

These institutes represent areas of research excellence and scale - and will demonstrate RMIT's capabilities at nationally and internationally leading levels. We will be investing in quality researchers and research students, and the infrastructure to support them, to ensure RMIT grows our national and internationally leading excellence and impact in these areas of focus.

Research projects undertaken under the Institutes’ banner will:

tackle research questions of significance,
feature levels of multidisciplinary collaboration that underpin strong research outcomes,
be partnered with industry and community to ensure the uptake of their outcomes.
These projects will provide opportunities for our research students to develop a broad range of capabilities while they undertake the highest level of research within vibrant research team environments.

In 2009, 16 scholarships will be offered to the value of AU$26,000 per annum for 3 years. The scholarship also provides relocation allowance (up to $1485) and thesis costs (up to $840).
