The RACS Scholarships and Grants Program
A large number of scholarships and grants are offered annually by the Scholarships and Grants Program in two rounds – research scholarships in March and learning and development grants in August.
Trainees and SET applicants are eligible to apply for the majority of opportunities on offer. SET applicants must provide evidence of acceptance into the SET program by December in the year of application.
About research scholarships
Research scholarships offer recipients the opportunity to pursue a major research project over a period ranging from one to three years. They are usually undertaken through an approved research institute in Australia or Aotearoa New Zealand, are paid as a stipend via the institute on behalf of RACS and may include departmental maintenance.
Research scholarships for 2022 are open from 1 March to 12 April, with outcomes advised in August 2021.
About learning and development grants
Learning and development grants offer recipients the opportunity to pursue professional development, training or small research activities in Australia, Aotearoa New Zealand or overseas.
They are usually undertaken over weeks or some months and are paid as a lump sum directly to the recipient.
Learning and development grants for 2022 open in August, with outcomes advised in December 2022.
