2015 Full Master Scholarships at South Australia University

Deadline: 31 August 2015
Open to: Australian and International graduates
Scholarship: annual stipend of $25,849, tuition fees, health insurance


The University of South Australia is a globally-focused, locally-engaged institution established on the dual principles of equity and excellence. With more than 33,000 students, the university is South Australia’s largest and has more than 10,000 International students.

The University of South Australia is inviting applications for the President’s Scholarships available for Australian and International students and awarded on the basis of academic merit. Scholarships are available to support students enrolling in areas of research concentration and research strength and are nearly always given to doctorate by research candidates but can be given to masters by research candidates in some cases.


In order to be eligible for the scholarship you must have a University of South Australia supervisor willing to nominate you for consideration and outstanding academic records, and be a citizen of an overseas country eligible for entry to Australia for the time required to complete the research degree.

Criteria for Australian applicants:

  • Generally an applicant must have first-class Honours or equivalent to be eligible;
  • Scholarships are awarded on the basis that the candidate will be studying full-time. In some cases, candidates can apply to receive scholarships on a part-time basis if there are compelling social reasons (eg the need to provide full-time care of children, disabled, sick, injured or elderly). The need to undertake part- or full-time work is not considered a compelling social reason.

Criteria for International applicants:

  • Generally an applicant must have first-class Honours or equivalent to be eligible;
  • An awardee must be enrolled on a full-time basis as a candidate for a Masters by Research or PhD at the University of South Australia.
  • An awardee shall be enrolled as an internal candidate at the University of South Australia.


The UPS scholarship includes a living allowance of at least $25,849 per annum. In addition UPS will cover tuition fees and Overseas Student Health Cover.
