The UQ Graduate School Scholarship (UQGSS) rounds award scholarships to domestic and international students. Students will be awarded either an Australian Government Research Training Program (RTP) Scholarship or a UQ funded scholarship via a competitive scholarship round twice per year. These provide a living allowance and a tuition fee offset. For international applicants who will study in Australia on a student visa, the scholarship also includes an allowance for single overseas student health cover.
