QUT Research Scholarships provides information on the annual scholarship round and other QUT scholarships that may be available – CARRS-Q may be able to support your application.

Experience in road safety or injury prevention research is an added advantage but not essential. Applicants from all disciplines (particularly psychology, engineering, public health, business, computer science and social sciences) are encouraged to apply and should meet QUT’s admission criteria (PDF file, 98.47 KB).

The PhD program does not have to commence at the beginning of an academic semester, although this is often the most convenient time for the candidate.

CARRS-Q has a particular outreach to rural and remote regions of Queensland and is positively interested in applicants who would be enrolling in a distance education format of their PhD program.

A full time PhD scholarship provides a stipend (tax exempt, indexed annually) over 3 years and full project support and mentoring. Amounts vary depending on type of scholarship.
