USC Road Safety Research Collaboration (RSRC) Group Scholarship

Applications are now open for Semester 1, 2021.

Selections will be held in January/February with all applicants being notified of the outcome of their application by Friday, 26 February 2021.

The USC Road Safety Research Collaboration was established as a strategic collaboration between the Queensland Government, the Motor Accident Insurance Commission and USC in September 2018 to undertake research that will positively impact the lives and safety of Queenslanders.

The USC Road Safety Research Collaboration (RSRC) Group Scholarship aims to encourage and support students to undertake Honours programs and experience research activities within the USC Road Safety Research Collaboration (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.

Please Note:  This scholarship or bursary is offered on a yearly basis through funds provided by an external donor. If funding is not available in any given year, the scholarship or bursary will not be awarded.
