RAGS assists Doctor of Philosophy (Arts), Masters by Research and Masters by Coursework candidates with the School to enrich their research and candidature. The Scheme allows students to apply for assistance. Schools allocate a portion of their research budget for graduate use, in addition to the funds that support graduate journals and school conferences.

If you wish to apply for research funding to support a conference presentation or research travel for example, please refer to the guidelines which outline eligibility and application procedures.


Funding will be awarded of up to $2,500 per candidature for PhD students, and $1250 per candidature for Masters by Research students.
