Bushfire CRC Education program
The Bushfire CRC is assisting course and curriculum developers across a broad range of higher education courses to enhance their course content with the lastest bushfire research.
Bushfire CRC scholarship students study at a range of Australian universities. Scholarships are only available at universities participating in the Bushfire CRC's program.
The Bushfire CRC has currently closed its call for new scholarship students.
The Bushfire CRC has outstanding postgraduate students as part of a dynamic national bushfire research program for safer communities and ecological sustainability, investigating areas such as fire behaviour, management of fire in the landscape, and the social and economic aspects of bushfires.
We sought students with strong academic records and relevant experience who were keenly interested in pursuing a PhD with a view to researching key issues for fire and land management agencies around Australia and New Zealand.
The Bushfire CRC offered outstanding postgraduate students access to:
Full Scholarships of $28,000 per annum over 3 years, and
Top Up Scholarships (for APAs and University scholarships) of $10,000 per annum over 3 years.
