The Industry PhD Program is engaging industry and universities to train the future workforce through practical, demand driven research projects. Industry partners, in conjunction with our university partners, provide the industry PhD research agenda based on their societal knowledge of pressing needs and issues. RACE PhD candidates will have individual and collective passions that can be harnessed to create positive, impactful actions, outcomes, and change.
RACE will fund 55 industry PhD candidates to be completed through to 2030 within the four RACE research programs, CLICK HERE to learn more. RACE will provide living stipend scholarships of $38,000/year for three years to successful candidates. The lead industry partner and host university will attribute $12,500/year each towards the PhD scholarship from their RACE contributions, with RACE contributing the remaining $13,000. Additionally, RACE will provide candidates with $3,000/year for three years for additional expenses.
Each industry PhD project must have an industry partner and an associated Industry Reference Group (IRG) of several members to provide guidance on the PhD research and ensure the research addresses an industry issue, in addition to the support provided through the partner University.
