Flinders International Postgraduate Research Scholarship (FIPRS)

Thursday, May 23, 2013

Flinders International Postgraduate Research Scholarships (FIPRS) 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 FIPRS will be automatically considered for the InternationalPostgraduate Research Scholarship (IPRS).

Scholarship value
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.

Eligibility
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.
