Adelaide Graduate Research Scholarships (AGRS)
The University of Adelaide offers a number of Adelaide Graduate Research Scholarships exclusively to its recent graduates to continue their education via a Masters or Doctorate degree by research.
These scholarships were created specifically for outstanding recent graduates whose recent graduate status means they are not competitive for scholarships in the general scholarship rounds (IPRS, ASI). In the general scholarship rounds they would have to 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.
All applications are ranked in a competitive application process. The selection and ranking of applicants within the University of Adelaide is undertaken by the Graduate Scholarships Committee, using the sole criteria of academic performance.
The Undergraduate Score and the Postgraduate Score are used to formulate the ranking of each application in the round. The Undergraduate Score is derived from the academic results from the applicant's undergraduate degree.
The Postgraduate Score is derived on the basis of honours results or the academic results from the applicant's postgraduate degree (whichever qualification is higher).
Closing Date for Major AGRS Round (semester 1 or 2 intake): 31 October of the year prior.
Applicants will be notified of the outcome of their scholarship application by mid December. Recipients with a semester 1 intake only MUST commence their research program by 30 June. Recipients with a semester 2 intake (offered in the major AGRS round) MUST commence their research program by 31 August.
Closing Date for Mid-Year AGRS Round (semester 2 intake only): 30 April of that year.
Applicants will be notified of the outcome of their scholarship application by the end of July. Recipients MUST commence their research program by 30 November.
