The Melbourne International Research Scholarships (MIRS) is awarded to international students wishing to undertake graduate research degree studies at the University of Melbourne. Each year the University offers about 200 new Melbourne Research Scholarships (MRSs), of which about 150 are normally awarded to international students as MIRSs.
To be considered for a MIRS, applicants need to apply for scholarship and candidature in a graduate research degree course (eg. masters by research, PhD or other research doctorate) at the University of Melbourne. Both commencing and currently enrolled international research higher degree students may apply. Selection will be based on the eligibility criteria and academic merit.
Applicants will be advised via email as soon as an outcome to their scholarship application is determined.
