International Postgraduate Research Scholarships enabling international students


The Australian government commits $20M funding annually to Australian universities for over 300 International Postgraduate Research Scholarships (IPRS).

IPRS 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 master's degree or three years for a research doctorate degree.

The scholarship covers tuition fees and health cover costs for scholarship holders, and health cover costs for their dependents. Commencing IPRS recipients are also able to apply for an Australian Postgraduate Award.



 To search for open IPRS applications copy (or type) international postgraduate research scholarship into the StudyInAustralia scholarship search.



Each university has its own application and selection process, please contact your chosen university directly to discuss how to apply for the IPRS scheme.
