Expressions of interest for IDTC program and scholarships 

ATN universities offer scholarships as part of the IDTC’s PhD intake and we are inviting all interested students to submit an expression of interest by filling out the form below, and submitting all the required documents. Each university offers a number of 4 year, full-time, Research Training Program stipend scholarships, as part of the IDTC PhD program, with some universities offering an additional $2-3K on top of the RTP stipend-level scholarship.

When to Apply

Applications are reviewed throughout the year on a regular basis. However, to ensure that you are considered in the next round of scholarship applications for February 2018 intake, you must submit your application by the 30th of October 2017.

You are also welcome to use the same forms to 'express your interest' as a student in the IDTC PhD program, even if you do not need a scholarship from one of the ATN universities.
