Charles Darwin University (CDU) is offering generous scholarships to help you undertake your PhD and be part of the next generation of outstanding researchers for Northern Australia and Asia.
While you undertake your PhD you will receive a living scholarship valued at up to $40,000 pa, plus a relocation allowance - and have your tuition fees paid!
This is a great opportunity to work in a unique and stimulating research environment on issues of national importance, with a particular focus on the growth economies of Northern Australia and its regional neighbours, supported (according to your field) in one of our outstanding Research Institutes.
