Research Training Scholarships

ARNA offers Research Training Scholarships to support members undertaking a research degree (Bachelor Honours, Masters or PhD) at a university, in line with ARNA's research priorities  .
The Scholarship will be:

  • a single payment of $5,000 for Bachelor Honours;
  • $5,000 annually for 2 years for a research-based Master's qualification (the research project must be equivalent to a minimum of 1 year full time enrolment; or
  • $5,000 annually for 3 years for a PhD

Scholarship holders may convert from a Master's degree to a PhD. In these cases, consideration may be given to extending the period of the scholarship for another year.
