Suitably qualified, high-achieving Higher Degree by Research (HDR) students have the opportunity to pursue research in key strategical priority agricultural scientific fields. The QAAFI adviser will decide in consultation with DHDR if eligible current and future QAAFI domestic and international students should be nominated for a UQ Graduate School scholarship.  The QAAFI scholarship committee may rank these nominees higher, but this does not guarantee success during UQ Graduate School’s assessment across the Science Cluster.
Please contact the relevant QAAFI researcher to discuss project opportunities and visit the UQ Graduate School’s competitive scholarship rounds website if they agree to nominate you for a UQ scholarship.
