Elite Research Scholarships

The University of Tasmania offers Elite Research Scholarships for PhD candidates in areas we excel in: the health and medical sciences, natural, physical and applied sciences, as well as business and management, regional development, education and the humanities.

Our Elite Research Scholarships are valued at $32,000 per annum tax-free, and are available for three years, with a possible six-month extension.

We also support our PhD candidates with a suite of practical resources throughout their higher degrees by research including laptops, opportunities for performance-based scholarship top ups, cloud data storage, a conference support fund, generic skilling and supportive candidature management which help each candidate navigate their own research path.

If you have an outstanding academic record and a passion for research we probably have an Elite Research Scholarship for you.

Promising candidates within Australia and New Zealand are eligible for a return airfare to visit UTAS and their School of interest to help them decide. And if chosen, generous relocation support is available.
