Find a Scholarship helps you discover the research scholarship that is right for you, and provides information on all currently available scholarships.

CARRS-Q may be able to support your application.

We encourage applicants from all disciplines, and in particular psychology, engineering, public health, business, computer science and social sciences. Experience in road safety or injury prevention research is an added advantage but not essential.  All applicants should meet QUT’s admission criteria (PDF file, 98.47 KB).

The PhD program may start at a time of your choosing and is not required to commence at the beginning of an academic semester (although we find this a convenient time for our candidates).

CARRS-Q has a particular outreach to rural and remote regions of Queensland and welcomes applicants 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.
