Research capacity building

Building the skills and resources of our Australian researchers

Our research capacity building measures are designed to assist students and academics in their studies and build depth in their fields of research. They include a Postgraduate Scholarship Top-up, Postgraduate Symposium and Postdoctoral Fellowship.

We offer a Housing Postgraduate Scholarship Top-up to assist postgraduate students in their housing and urban research.

The top-up amount is $7000 for current holders of Australian Research Council, university or other similar postgraduate scholarships. Top-ups are only available to students of AHURI's National Housing Research Program partner universities.

For information on scholarship top-up recipients view our current postgraduate scholars.
