Flinders University :International Postgraduate Research Scholarships (IPRS)
Opening Date: 16-06-2013 Closing Date: 16-08-2013
International Postgraduate Research Scholarships (IPRS) (formerly EIPRS) are awarded to international students on the basis of academic merit, academic research training and research indicators and performance. The scholarships enable suitably qualified applicants to commence a full-time research higher degree.
The scholarship is tenable for up to three years for a Research Doctorate degree and up to two years for a Research Masters degree. Successful applicants are required to undertake full time study.
Applicants for the IPRS will be automatically considered for the Flinders International Postgraduate Research Scholarship (FIPRS).
The IPRS pays the international student tuition fees charged by Flinders University for a research higher degree. The IPRS also provides the recipient and dependents with student health cover. IPRS students are not required to pay for visa application fees for themselves or their dependents.
In addition, Flinders University may provide, to students with outstanding prior studies, a Flinders stipend to accompany the IPRS. The Flinders stipend provides the recipient with a generous living allowance paid at the rate of $24,653 per annum (2013 rate). It is tax exempt and indexed annually. The University reserves the right not to award a Flinders stipend. IPRS students may also receive a Dependent Child Allowance in respect of a child (or children) up to 18 years of age who is dependent on the award holder's income and who is residing with the scholarship holder in Adelaide.
An IPRS student who moves to Adelaide from overseas is eligible for an establishment allowance (after arrival at Flinders) of up to $1,485 to assist with relocation costs and airfares, provided receipts can be produced by the student.
Applicants must be a citizen of any overseas country, except New Zealand, and, satisfy the University's academic entry requirements for a Masters degree by research or Doctorate by research, including the English proficiency levels set by Flinders University for international students. Students for whom English is a foreign language will need to provide evidence of their English language competence. Applicants must not hold an equivalent research higher degree qualification. Applications are normally only open to students commencing a research higher degree in Australia for the first time. Please see the attached conditions of award for full eligibility criteria.
