Tasmania Graduate Research Scholarship (TGRS) is awarded throughout the year to high-quality international and domestic candidates. Tasmania Graduate Research Scholarships are available across all research disciplines at the University of Tasmania and will be awarded to applicants with demonstrated research ability.
Scholarships are allocated competitively based on academic merit, experience, prior learning and other relevant attainments. Priority is given to new candidates in strategic research areas.
University of Tasmania Scholarship will provide:
Stipend: AUD $28,597 per annum (2023 rate). This rate is indexed annually on 1st January.
Relocation allowance: The TGRS provides an allowance to assist with costs associated with relocating to Tasmania to undertake a Higher Degree by Research up to AUD $2,000.
Other allowances: Award holders may also receive minor awards, allowances or other earnings which are supplementary to the Tasmania Graduate Research Scholarship or income derived from part-time work undertaken within the guidelines set by the University.
To qualify for University of Tasmania Scholarship, the candidate must fulfill all of the following requirements below:
Required Language: English
Eligible Countries: All world countries
Successful applicants must have completed at least four years of tertiary education studies and have achieved at least an upper second-class Honours degree or equivalent.
Awards are only available to those who will be undertaking a full-time research Masters or Doctoral degree in 2023.
Candidates must not be receiving another equivalent award, scholarship or salary to undertake the proposed program (if that income is greater than seventy-five percent of the base RTP stipend rate).
