- Support capability development and capacity building in research areas where Defence has an interest;
- Facilitate defence-relevant research engagement between universities, industry, DST Group, Defence and/or research organisations
by providing stipend support for students undertaking their research higher degree on defence-related projects and/or Defence-industry placements as part of their study.
RHD Student Grants can be used to support any student working on a project that meets the defined criteria. Grants are awarded on a competitive basis.
It is expected that the following number of grants will be available for awarding:
