International Postgraduate Research Scholarships (IPRS) are a tuition fee scholarship for full-time study towards a higher degree by research. These prestigious scholarships are funded by the Australian Government. UWS supports IPRS awardees with a living allowance and overseas student health cover.
Deadline: 16 August 2013
Students from any overseas country, except New Zealand, who are commencing a new research degree course and do not already hold an equivalent degree are eligible to apply. Applicants for coursework awards are not eligible to apply, even where there is a research component in the degree. Students who have already commenced their research degree may not be eligible.
Current AusAID students are ineligible.
How will my application be ranked?
Applicants eligible for consideration for an International Postgraduate Research Scholarship will be ranked by the UWS Research Committee Scholarship Panel, following recommendation from the host School of the Research Centre or Research Group.
Eligible applicants will:
- have an academic record at least equivalent to an Australian 1st Class Bachelor Honours degree. This is a four year degree with a major research project in the final year, with a score of at least 80 per cent.
- be supervised in one of UWS’s areas of research concentration
