The Flinders University Postgraduate Research Scholarship for International Students 2023

The Flinders University Postgraduate Research Scholarship is a scholarship program specifically organized to support international students furthering postgraduate research degrees at Flinders University, located in Adelaide, Australia. The scholarship provides financial assistance and different benefits to encourage international students to undertake their research studies at Flinders University.

The Flinders International Research Scholarship (FIPRS) is a unique scholarship specifically planned to support international students that cover international tuition fees and also provides a stipend. A very limited number of FIPRS for international students are available each year (5 scholarships in 2022) and due to the limited number of scholarships, each round is highly competitive. The FIPRS is granted to candidates who display an excellent aptitude for independent research, academic merit, academic research training, and research indicators and performance.

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 needed to undertake full-time study and must be starting a higher degree by research in Australia for the first time.


  • The FIPRS pays the international student tuition fees charged by Flinders University for a research higher degree.
  • In addition, a stipend provides the recipient with a generous living allowance paid at the rate of $33,000 per annum (2023 rate). It is tax-exempt and indexed annually.
  • A 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.
