International Postgraduate Research Awards
The International Postgraduate Research Scholarships (IPRS) scheme enables international students to undertake a postgraduate research qualification in Australia and gain experience with leading Australian researchers.
Scholarships are open to international students of all countries (except New Zealand) and are available for a period of two years for a Research Masters degree and three years for a Research Doctorate degrees. The scholarship covers tuition fees and health cover costs for scholarship holders, and health cover costs for their dependants.
Individual higher education providers (provider) are responsible for managing the scholarship process including application, selection and offers to students. To find out more about how to apply you will need to contact your chosen provider directly. Contact details and information about the application process for an IPRS can be found on their website.
