Applications now open | QRC Coal Minesite Rehabilitation Post Graduate Scholarships

01 Oct 2020 8:01 AM | Stuart Ritchie (Administrator)

The Queensland Resources Council (QRC) has advised that the 2021 Coal Minesite Rehabilitation Scholarships (Minesite Rehabilitation Scholarships) are now open for application.  

Up to two postgraduate scholarships are on offer in 2021, each up to a value of $35,000 per annum, for up to three years. These scholarships are to cover living expenses of the scholars rather than funding of the research being undertaken.

Applications are sought by way of a brief proposal (no more than 10 pages in length) from postgraduate students who are undertaking, or are planning to undertake, research aligned to one or more of the 2021 Research Priorities (listed on the attached flyer and guidelines docs).

Universities also have the option to submit a brief proposal for consideration, prior to identifying a student to undertake the proposed research.


A flyer is attached for promotional purposes. Complete information on how to apply for the Minesite Rehabilitation Scholarships is available on the QRC website, by clicking here. This information includes the 2021 Research Priorities along with the Criteria for Proposals and Selection Process in the document entitled ‘2021 Postgraduate Scholarships Guidelines’. The ‘Standard Scholarship Agreement’, is also available for download which applies to each granted scholarship and covers the research project reporting milestones, scholarship payment schedule and addresses intellectual property issues.

Please submit applications to rehabfund@qrc.org.au.


Friday 11 December 2020. 

University proposals are also due on this date. If the project is successful in proceeding to the next round of the selection process, universities will have until 22 January 2021 to nominate a student to the project.

Please forward this information on to students or other potentially interested parties . For further information please email rehabfund@qrc.org.au.
