The purpose of the Australian Government Research Training Program Scholarships (International), more commonly known as AGRTPS, is to provide financial assistance to international students who are enrolled in a Higher Degree by Research program at Flinders University. The Australian Government Residency and Training Support Program (AGRTPS) provides participants with a living stipend, an offset for international tuition fees, and support for overseas medical costs. Please be aware that the AGRTPS is considered a Commonwealth Sponsored Scholarship for the purposes of obtaining a visa. There are up to five accessible AGRTPS each year, but the competition for these scholarships is fierce because there are only a limited number available.

Candidates must demonstrate an exceptional propensity for conducting independent research in order to be considered for the AGRTPS. Academic merit, academic research instruction, research indicators and performance, and overall research performance are the determining factors for AGRTPS consideration. The scholarship can be held for a maximum of two years for a Research Master’s degree and three years for a Research Doctorate degree. In order to be considered for this scholarship, applicants must be willing to devote their entire time to academic pursuits and must be starting their first research-based higher degree in Australia.
