Scholarship applications for Semester 1 2024 are now open and will close on Sunday 3 March 2024.

All applicants will be notified of the outcome of their application by close of business, 15 March 2024.

The MAIC/UniSC Road Safety Research Collaboration (RSRC) was established in 2018 as a strategic partnership between the Motor Accident Insurance Commission (MAIC) and the University of the Sunshine Coast (UniSC) to undertake high level, applied research that positively impacts the lives and safety of Queensland's road users and community. Comprising of a team of over 20 research academics, HDR scholars and casual research officers, we are fast becoming the leading road safety research centre in Queensland producing world-class research outputs, with a focus on impaired driving.

The MAIC/UniSC RSRC Scholarship aims to encourage and support students to undertake Honours programs and experience research activities within the RSRC research team.

Road deaths and serious injuries have devastating social consequences, resulting in an estimated A$27 billion annual cost to the Australian economy. Our applied research aims to reduce the personal, social, and economic burdens associated with road crashes in Queensland.

Scholarship payments will be made approximately three weeks after Census Date once enrolment has been confirmed.
