Royal Rehab partners with the University of Notre Dame Australia on Research Scholarship

At Royal Rehab, we pride ourselves on being at the forefront of world-class research and education. We are so excited to announce a new research scholarship partly funded by Royal Rehab in collaboration with the University of Notre Dame Australia.

The tax-free scholarship valued at $30,000 per annum for up to three years focusses on the research areas of resilience and traumatic injury rehabilitation.

What is the PhD scholarship for?

The program is centred around inner strength, connectedness, hope and spiritual well-being. This study seeks to explore these factors with rehabilitation inpatients, and address ways that these factors could be better facilitated to enhance resilience among individuals with spinal cord injury or traumatic brain injury.

Seeking talented applicants!

We are seeking applications from highly motivated candidates interested in pursuing a PhD under the direction and supervision of an expert academic and clinical team based at the University of Notre Dame Australia and on-campus at Royal Rehab Ryde.
