International Postgraduate
Research Scholarships (IPRS)
The objectives of the IPRS scheme are to:
• attract top quality international postgraduate students
to areas of research strength in Australian higher
education providers (HEP); and
• support Australia's research effort.
The scholarship covers tuition fees and health
cover costs for scholarship holders, and health
cover costs for their dependents.
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 or
• three years for a research doctorate degree.
• Applications for an IPRS need to be made directly to
participating universities. Universities are responsible for the
management of IPRS applications, the selection process and
offers. International students and researchers need to
approach their chosen university for direction about how to
apply for an IPRS.
• A total of 330 IPRS places are awarded to HEPs each year at a
cost of around $20m (approx. €14m) per annum.
