Adelaide Scholarships International (ASI): The University of Adelaide offers a scholarships scheme for international students undertaking postgraduate research study.

Its purpose is to attract high quality overseas postgraduate students to areas of research strength in the University of Adelaide to support its research effort. The selection for scholarships is extremely competitive.

The ASI scholarships are available to outstanding international students from any country undertaking postgraduate research in any academic discipline.

International students ASI Scholarships provide:

1. Course tuition fees for two years for a Masters degree by Research and three years for a Doctoral research degree (an extension is possible for doctoral programs only);

If the award holder holds a subclass 574 visa the award covers the cost of compulsory standard Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) Worldcare policy for the student and their spouse and dependents (if any) for the period of the scholarship. If the award holder does not hold a subclass 574 visa then he/she is responsible for the cost of health insurance.
