The Graduate Scholarships Committee looks after the selection and ranking of the students applying for the University of Adelaide by using the academic merit criteria and research potential.

Benefits of this Adelaide scholarship

  • The cost of the educational course for two years Master’s Research Degree and 3 years Doctoral Research Degree.
  • Annual compensation of nearly $26,288 for living for two years Master’s Research Degree and 3 years of the degree of the doctoral research.
  • For students holding Subclass 500 visa, there is a mandatory overseas standard health cover (OSHC) policy for students and their spouse or any dependents for the duration of the student’s visa.
