Every little saving helps at RMIT

The university says, “several grants are available … to provide with you the opportunity to pursue excellence in your research.” Just not next year

A notice to research leaders advises there will be no university scholarships, “through usual rounds” for research students in 2021.  There will be an update mid-year.

Students are advised to check scholarships in funded projects.

RMIT needs to find savings – Carnegie and Guthrie estimate it depends on international students for 43 per cent of total income from continuing operations last year, (CMM Friday). Larkins and Marshman rate it the second most at-risk university in the country, with available reserves unable to cover predicted declines in international student income, (CMM May 31).
