Postgraduate Research Support Scheme

PRSS is a scheme introduced by the University in 2001 to provide direct support for currently enrolled postgraduate research students, the scheme distributes $1.5 million in funding.

Under the scheme, eligible students can apply for funding to their relevant school or faculty and are notified of the outcome after a ranking process has been completed. Selection committees will consider the quality of an applicant's research progress relative to opportunity and stage of candidature, demonstrated need for funding, and priorities, if any, placed on the different expenditure categories by the Faculty or School.

In light of the current lockdown situation, PRSS funding may not be used to support any travel for the remainder of 2021.

PRSS funding can still be used for virtual conference expenses. It will not be possible to request funds to support in-person conference expenses.

You will not be able to save your application to return at a later time.

Please note that not all Faculties and University Schools are participating in Round 2 for 2021.
