Postgraduate Student Program

The Postgraduate Student Program supports and extends the broader research activities of the CRCNA. 

Postgraduate Scholarship Students are directly affiliated with the CRCNA either by being embedded within one of our research projects (with scholarship funding included in the project proposal), or through our scholarship program.

The CRCNA is committed to providing meaningful professional development and networking opportunities for our postgraduate students to grow their skill sets and connect them with industry, government, other institutions, and with their peers.

Postgraduate scholarships

Our postgraduate scholarships are open for applications on an ongoing basis. We are looking for the best and the brightest research students who are working on or planning projects aligned with CRCNA research priorities. We are particularly interested in students who are from Northern Australia, and through their research projects want to contribute to developing Northern Australia for the benefit of the people who live and work in this expansive and incredibly diverse part of the country.

Scholarships will be awarded based on several factors including:

  • The relevance of the proposed research project to CRCNA research priorities
  • The academic excellence or demonstrated potential of the applicant
  • Evidence of institutional support and endorsement by supervisor
  • Evidence of ability to undertake research – including a clear and thorough research proposal

Postgraduate student professional development

The CRCNA is invested in retaining and growing research capacity in Northern Australia. Postgraduate Scholarship and Associate Students will be kept informed about professional development programs.

If you would like to stay updated about these and other opportunities, please subscribe to CRCNA updates.
