The University of Adelaide offers a number of Adelaide Graduate Research Scholarships exclusively to its recent international graduates to continue their education via a Masters or Doctorate degree by research.
This cohort of scholarships were created specifically for outstanding recent international graduates whose recent graduate status means they are not competitive for scholarships in the general international higher degree by research scholarship rounds (RTP, ASI). In such scholarship rounds they would compete against the best scholarship applicants worldwide who have generally had many more years to gain valuable research experience and demonstrate academic excellence. For this reason recent eligible University of Adelaide graduates are only ranked in this (AGRS) scholarship cohort where they have a significantly higher chance of winning a scholarship to further their studies.
In order to be eligible for consideration an applicant must:
- be completing / have completed their qualifying program of study (see below) at The University of Adelaide within the previous 4 semesters prior to the intake applied for (to ensure uninterrupted study applicants are encouraged to apply whilst completing the final semester of their current studies);
- be an international student at the time of application and enrolment;
- enrol as a commencing student in a full-time postgraduate research program at the University of Adelaide in the approved semester; and
- not be currently enrolled in the Higher Degree by Research program at the University of Adelaide for which the student is applying for the scholarship.
