About the RMIT University
RMIT University (officially Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, abbreviated RMIT) is a public research university in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.
Francis Ormond founded the Working Men’s College of Melbourne in 1887 as a private night school giving training in art, science, and technology in response to Australia’s industrial revolution. After combining with the Phillip Institute of Technology in 1992, it was become a public university by an act of the Victoria Parliament.

How to apply
The RMIT PhD application procedure and the DF CRC scholarship application process are separate. To be eligible for the scholarship, applications must be submitted to the DF CRC and RMIT in the following order:
- Submit an application for the DF CRC at https://dfcrc.com.au/industry-phd/.
- Notify the RMIT Higher Degree by Research Industry Engagement team at [email protected] that your DF CRC application has been filed.
- If you are awarded a DF CRC fellowship, submit your formal PhD Declaration of Interest to RMIT via https://www.rmit.edu.au/research/research-degrees/how-to-apply.
- This scholarship program does not support initiatives initiated by students. If you are awarded a DF CRC scholarship, you will be paired with one of the DF CRC members to conduct an industry-based PhD research project.
- The RMIT EoI/application procedure is independent of the DF CRC scholarship program, and receiving a DF CRC scholarship does not ensure admission to the RMIT PhD program.
