Research Awards

The RMIT Research Awards and Prizes focus on research excellence and research impact. It is through these research contributions that RMIT continues to bridge the gap between research and impact, benefitting those beyond the academic community.

The research awards and prizes acknowledge the accomplishments of individual researchers, research teams, research leaders, supervisors, and HDR candidates.

Applications for the 2021 RMIT Research Awards and Prizes are now closed. Thank you for your interest in this year's awards. We will be announcing the list of 2021 winners in October.
