Flinders University Scholarships for International Students
Flinders International Postgraduate Research Scholarships (FIPRS) are awarded to suitably qualified applicants to pursue a full-time research higher degree at Flinders University - up to three years for a research doctorate degree and up to two years for a master’s degree.
All disciplines available on website.
Open to all international students (except from Australia and New Zealand).
Applicants must satisfy the University’s academic entry requirements for a master’s degree by research or a doctorate by research, including the English proficiency levels set by Flinders University for international students.
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.
NB: Students for whom English is a foreign language will need to provide evidence of their English language competence.
The FIPRS pays the international student tuition fees charged by Flinders University for a research higher degree.
In addition, Flinders University provides the recipient with a generous living allowance paid at the rate of $23,728 per annum (2012 rate). It is tax exempt and indexed annually.
An FIPRS 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.
The closing date for applications is 31 August. It is important to read the Application Guidelines and visit the official website (link found below) for detailed information on how to apply for this scholarship.
