Applications are now open for the 2021 round of DSI's Research Higher Degree (RHD) Student Grants.
Valued at $15,000 each and awarded to the university, RHD Student Grants are designed to encourage collaboration between industry, DST Group, Defence or universities to develop the next generation of researchers.
Specifically, the Grants aim to:
► develop research linkages between universities and DST Group and Defence sector businesses;
► support capacity building in research areas where Defence has an interest;
► promote new Defence-related research linkages between universities
by providing stipend support for students undertaking their RHD on Defence-related projects and/or undertaking Defence-industry placements as part of their study.
RHD Student Grants are open to academic staff of DSI Participant universities in Victoria and Tasmania. Applications will be accepted at any time throughout 2021, however, applicants are encouraged to submit early.
All applications are to be submitted online via the DSI Grant portal.
