UNSW offers a range of scholarships to support postgraduate research students in the Master of Science and PhD degrees. Depending on the scholarship awarded, these may cover tuition fee costs and/or living expenses. Students who are already enrolled may be eligible to apply for these. Scholarships are available for both local and international postgraduate students.

Postgraduate students are encouraged to attend conferences to present their work, and meet other researchers in their field. The Postgraduate Research Scholarship Scheme funds travel costs for postgraduate students. Professional societies and conference organisations may also offer travel scholarships for postgraduate students to attend.

Full details about available scholarships, including eligibility requirements, closing dates and how to apply are available from the Graduate Research School.
