Research Students

HDR Support Funding

The Faculty supports HDR candidates in the production of creative, relevant and distinguished research in law, humanities and the arts, by providing our HDR candidates with access to two research funding schemes.


Research Activity Support (RAS) Funding

The RAS scheme supports activities associated with producing research for example, fieldwork, research-related travel and creative production.

The RAS is not a competitive scheme. Funds will be allocated on the basis of student need and are limited by the overall pool of RAS funds available within each School.

Candidates seeking RAS funding will complete a formal application. Applications must have the written support of the Principal Supervisor.

The RAS Scheme is intended to provide a contribution to the overall cost of producing research. The maximum amount of RAS funding available is:

  • Masters by research = $1000 per candidature
  • PhD, PhD(Integrated) and Doctor of Creative Arts = $2000 per candidature 

Conference, Exhibition and Performance Subsidy (CEPS) Scheme

The CEPS scheme supports participation in domestic and international academic conferences, as well as domestic and international public exhibitions and performances.

The CEPS scheme is competitive. Funds will be awarded on the basis of academic merit, within the context of the relevant School and are limited by the overall pool of CEPS funds available within each School.

Candidates seeking CEPS funding will complete a formal funding application. Applications must have the written support of the Principal Supervisor.

The CEPS scheme is only intended to provide a contribution to the overall cost of participating in conferences, public exhibitions and performances and there are maximum amounts of funding support available:

  • Masters by research = $1000 per candidature
  • PhD, PhD(Integrated) and Doctor of Creative Arts = $2000 per candidature 

Funding Rounds and Key Dates

CEPS funding applications are accepted in three rounds each year. 

  • Round 1 closing date: 18 April 2017
