Under this Scholarship program, the recipients will devote a substantial amount of time to an agreed research topic and present their findings to APRA upon completion of their research. Scholarship holders may also be able to gain valuable work experience with APRA during their final year of study.

Students are to provide details of your academic performance, work experience and extra-curricular activities as well as an outline of your proposed research and its relevance to APRA. Two written references must also be submitted online. Written references must be attached to the application form, so you may need to scan hard copies.
