The Flinders University International Postgraduate Research Scholarship program is designed to support outstanding international students who wish to undertake postgraduate research at master’s or PhD levels at the Flinders University. Recipients of the Flinders International Research Scholarship (FIPRS) are selected based on their exceptional research skills, academic achievements, and potential indicated by their previous research activities and outputs.

In the year 2024, awardees are required to have published five articles to earn the top score of 25 points. The scholarship supports up to three years of doctoral research or two years for a master’s by research. Recipients must be new to research studies in Australia and engage in full-time study. Students applying for the Australian Government Research Training Program Scholarship (AGRTPS) are automatically considered for FIPRS. The scholarship encompasses full funding, covering tuition fees, a generous stipend, and other benefits.
