Postgraduate Scholarships & Awards

The Australian government and the University of Sydney offer postgraduate scholarships for suitably qualified students to pursue research degrees. The scholarship opportunities available differ for Australian Domestic students and International students.

Australian Students
Information for Australian students seeking stipend support for living expenses via government and University funding streams.

International Students
International students may apply for scholarships supporting tuition, fees, and living expenses. The most relevant is generally the IPRS award.

For international students who are successful in being awarded a scholarship that does not include Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC), the School may cover that insurance cost.

School of Physics Scholarships

Students must have applied for an Australian government or University scholarship (follow the links above) in the first instance to be considered for a School of Physics scholarship.

The School of Physics will occasionally provide support schemes for postgraduate students enrolled or about to enrol in a higher research degree with the School. These include scholarships offered by specific research groups within the school to support tuition, and or living expenses.
