The International Postgraduate Research Scholarships (IPRS) program is funded by the Australian Government, Department of Innovation, Industry, Science and Research (DIISR).  The IPRS program was established to maintain and develop international research linkages and specifically aims to:

  • attract top quality international postgraduate students to areas of research strength in Australian higher education providers; and
  • support Australia’s research effort.

‣ The IPRS program enables international students to undertake a postgraduate research qualification in Australia and gain experience with leading Australian researchers.

‣ The scholarships are available for a period of two years for a Masters by research degree or three years for a Doctorate by research degree.


To be eligible for International Postgraduate Research Scholarships, a student must:

(a) be an international student; and

(b) meet international student visa requirements as specified by the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC), including the requirement to purchase and maintain a standard Overseas Student Health Cover policy approved by the Commonwealth Government Department of Health and Ageing; and
