University-wide scholarships for international research degree applicants
International Postgraduate Research Scholarships (IPRS)
International Postgraduate Research Scholarships (IPRS) are funded by the Department of Industry, Innovation Science, Research and Tertiary Education (DIISRTE) and awarded to international candidates on the basis of academic merit and research potential.
An IPRS will cover your tuition fees and your Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC), and provide a stipend (living allowance), but will not pay for travel expenses. A thesis allowance is funded to cover the cost of printing and binding the thesis.
