Applications are now open for the Australian Government – Rio Tinto NTRB Scholarship, a program that awards two postgraduate scholarships for undertaking a one year Master of Laws (LLM) in Mining Law and Policy at the University of Dundee, Scotland.

The scholarship is open to any Australian resident with a law degree. Successful candidates will commit to work within the NTRB system for a minimum period of two years on completion of their studies. The timing of the scholarships will correspond to the European academic year, commencing in September 2014.

The total value of the scholarship is A$50,892. The Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet provides an additional A$15,000 towards the living expenses of those recipients of the scholarship who are working in an NTRB at the time they receive the scholarship.

Online applications will be open from Monday 17th February through to Friday 14th March, 2014.
