The UQI scholarship is a UQ funded scholarship which provides a tuition fee award and a living allowance. Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) is not covered by this scholarship. The living allowance scholarship is co-funded by the Graduate School and the enrolling school or institute. Therefore nomination for this scholarship depends on the funding being available within your enrolling school or institute.

The UQI scholarships are awarded competitively, based on merit, to outstanding international students undertaking a research higher degree.

To be eligible you must:

  • Be an international student studying full-time and onshore in Australia. ^
  • Be nominated by the enrolling school or institute.
  • Be assessed by the Graduate School  as meeting all conditions for admission to the  research higher degree program.
  • Not hold a qualification  at the same or  a higher level than the  research higher degree program you are undertaking.
  • Not be receiving an award, scholarship or salary providing a benefit greater than 75% of the UQI rate to undertake the research higher degree program.

^ A part-time student, who is resident on a temporary resident visa, with carer’s responsibilities, a medical condition or a disability which prevents them from studying full time may be eligible for scholarship consideration, on a case by case basis.

Students can be considered for scholarship twice. Consideration can be prior to enrolment, or in the first round after the confirmation milestone* is achieved.
*conditions apply.

In instances where the candidate is awarded a scholarship after commencement there will be no retrospective payments of this scholarship.
