International Postgraduate Research Scholarships (IPRS) are awarded to Doctor of Philosophy international students undertaking quality research (fundamental or applied) in areas of research specialisation at USQ. The successful applicants will have their tuition fees and Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) which covers the student, their spouse and dependants (if any), met by the Australian Government. In addition USQ provides a fortnightly stipend to contribute towards living expenses.

The period of tenure of an award is three years for doctorate studies. Periods of study already undertaken towards the degree will be deducted from the period of tenure.
