What is the Research Training Program (RTP) and does it affect me?
The Australian Government’s Research Training Program (RTP) (in effect as of 1 January 2017) provides funding to Australian universities to support domestic and international candidates undertaking a higher degree by research (HDR) program. Support provided may include tuition fee offsets, stipends and allowances.
The provision of funding through the RTP is governed by the Commonwealth Scholarship Guidelines (Research) 2017. For more information, please see our Australian Government Research Training Program (RTP) Domestic Fee Offset Gudelines 2020.
