The College of Science and Engineering each year offers a small number of research awards to applicants for postgraduate research scholarships, who do not obtain an Australian Government Research Training Program (AGRTP) Scholarship or Flinders University Research Scholarship.
The College of Science and Engineering Research Awards are tenable at Flinders University for up to three years for a Doctorate by research, or up to two years for a Masters degree, subject to satisfactory progress. Periods of study already undertaken towards the degree may be deducted from the maximum period of tenure.
This award will only be available to applicants who will commence or are continuing a Masters degree by research or Doctorate by research in the Faculty of Science and Engineering.
The scholarship pays an indexed stipend of $28,579 p.a. tax free (2021 rate).
In addition, recipients who are Australian citizens, New Zealand citizens, or hold Australian Permanent Residency status will be provided a Research Training Program Fee Offset which covers tuition fees for up to four years.

This award will normally be offered on the basis of academic merit and research potential to the highest-ranked eligible postgraduate research scholarship applicant(s), who do not obtain an AGRTP Scholarship or Flinders University Research Scholarship.
To apply for a College of Science and Engineering Research Award, you will need to first submit an application for admission to a Research higher degree (PhD or Master of Arts by research) followed by an application for the RHD Scholarship group on the student information system, which will produce an application for all of the available scholarships in the main round.
You will need to have an active Flinders Authentication Name (FAN) to complete this process.
If you have never studied at, or made an application to Flinders University, you can register and submit your application for admission to a Research higher degree using the application portal.
After completing your registration you will receive a confirmation email, this will arrive within 1 hour to your nominated email address and will contain your login details and instructions on how to activate your FAN.
If you have studied at Flinders University within the last 12 months you can submit your application for admission to a research higher degree, and for a scholarship via the Student Information System.
You will find the application forms by selecting the My Applications tab at the top of the page; selecting the degree you wish to be admitted to, and completing the form. Once you have completed the application for admission, you will need to complete an application for the scholarship. To do this, continue by selecting the My Scholarship tab and then create a new scholarship application. The scholarship application is called RHD main Scholarship - group. Completing both applications will ensure you are assessed for both the AGRTPS and the FURS.
If you have studied at Flinders University but graduated more than 12 months ago you will need to reactive your FAN via the FAN reactivation page. With an active FAN you will then be able to submit your application for admission via the Student Information System as advised above.
If you have previously applied to study at Flinders, you will be able to reactive your FAN via the FAN reactivation page, you will need to enter your Fist name, Last name, date of birth and your student ID, normally found on any letters sent by the university to you. The system will be able to identify you more accurately if you can enter your student ID.
Once your application is complete, including all mandatory questions and documentation, your application will be assessed. Assessment will commence once applications have closed.
