International Postgraduate Research Studentship (IPRS)
Applications are invited from suitably qualified international students for scholarships to undertake the degree of Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) and Doctor of Education (EdD) at Murdoch University in areas in which the University has specialised research strengths. Preference will be given to PhD candidates.
The scholarships cover the research degree tuition fees and health insurance premiums. Murdoch University provides the successful applicant with a living allowance. The health insurance covers the student and their spouse and dependants (if any) for the period of the IPRS. Under the IPRS conditions travel and relocation costs are the responsibility of the applicant; however, Murdoch University provides their IPRS recipients with a (partial) allowance for relocation and airfares (based on receipts). Murdoch students also have access to a conference travel allowance once during the course of their degree, maintenance funding set by the Schools and a thesis production allowance.
Deadline for submission of applications for international scholarship awards is on: 30th September of each year
It is important that applicants include - if applicable - the following information as an attachment to their application:
- evidence of a major thesis (of approximately 6 months duration)
- evidence of academic research experience which may be equivalent to a major thesis
- examiners reports of any dissertation or thesis
- evidence of fellowship or professional memberships
- in the case of art, design or other performance based programmes where other criteria may be inappropriate, evidence of international or national reputation by way of exhibitions, performance, or production with your role clearly explained, can be included

The list should be presented with the following information: title, authorship (indicate your contribution, if it is a joint publication), type of publication (eg journal article, poster, CD-Rom, conference paper, performance, web-based publication), whether it is an academically refereed publication and details on how this item contributes to the proposed thesis
