2016 University Of South Australia International Postgraduate Research Scholarships (IPRS)

International Postgraduate Research Scholarships (IPRS) are funded by the Australian Government 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.

Benefits and conditions

Applicants must read the IPRS scholarship benefits and conditions before signing the declaration at the bottom of the application form. These conditions apply to all people who accept offers from the University of South Australia for the IPRS or UniSA President’s scholarship.

Main criteria

  • Generally an applicant must have first-class Honours or equivalent to gain a scholarship at the University of South Australia.
  • Scholarships are awarded on the basis that the candidate will be studying full-time. In some cases, candidates can apply to receive scholarships on a part-time basis if there are compelling social reasons (eg the need to provide full-time care of children, disabled, sick, injured or elderly). The need to undertake part- or full-time work is not considered a compelling social reason.

Awards will not be made to persons who

  • are in receipt of an equivalent major award or scholarship or salary from any other source, other than approved supplementary scholarships of lesser value, or remuneration for approved part-time employment
  • have completed a PhD degree or equivalent
  • have completed a Masters degree or equivalent unless commencing a PhD
  • seek to undertake paid employment on a full-time or substantial part-time basis
