Jobkeeper and RTP scholarship

Hi 

Can someone confirm that part-time PhD students receiving a Research Training Program (RTP) scholarship are eligible to receive JobKeeper from an a primary employer?  I have seen an answer for full-time students (the RTP for full time students isn't taxable) but I havent seen a reply for part-time RTP scholarships.  The RTP shouldn't be considered employment as it is for education purposes but it is treated as taxable income if part-time.

Hi,

I also have the same question as the original poster. The other thread linked above does not answer the specific question.

Hi @Mtig,

 

As mentioned in our other thread on Australian Government Research Training Program Scholarships and JobKeeper Eligibility, your scholarship will not impact your JobKeeper eligibility as an employee as a scholarship is not employment.
