Opportunities for Research Students

The Raine Study is a rich resource for researchers and students.  PhD candidates are encouraged to utilise the Raine Study for their research thesis, as long as at least one of the student’s supervisors is a Raine Study researcher.

Raine Study PhD Top-Up Scholarships

The Raine Study previously offered PhD top-up scholarship funding to students who were utilising the extensive data of the Raine Study and undertaking a Doctorate of Philosophy at a Western Australian university.

Scholarships were available to students who had completed (at least) the first year of their candidature, and could be held for a maximum of two years with a possible six-month extension. They were awarded to candidates who were able to demonstrate that their research would benefit the community and other investigators utilising the Raine Study, and which had a high likelihood of successful completion.

The scholarship was valued at $10,000 AUD per annum with an additional $2,500 per annum travel allowance.
