    PhD Scholarships

    University scholarships for Australian students are known as Australian Postgraduate Awards (APA). These scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic merit and in designated areas of research strength within the University. The University also offers a range of Scholarships for international students.

    Application involves filling in the "application form for admission/scholarship".

    When applying for domestic scholarships please remember to tick both the APA and Divisional box. After the closing date, the Graduate Centre will forward your application to the School to consider. If an APA is not awarded then the school will consider offering a divisional scholarship. Further details can be found at the scholarship websites http://www.adelaide.edu.au/scholarships/
