Are you staff at the university ( many PhD students have started off as Research Associates for a couple of years). Did you get first class honours (that's a given). If your Bachelor degree from Australia ?

The major culling happens with the honours grade. If you did not get first class honours now with the limited number of RTS available even if you get a scholarship you might miss out on this.
