The University of Adelaide Scholarships 2020 offers a wide range of funding opportunities for both domestic and international candidates. If you’re considering applying for a scholarship in one of the competitive rounds it’s important that you review the eligibility criteria before submitting a request for supervision, or submitting an application.
If you’re an international applicant and not a recent graduate of the University of Adelaide, you will be considered in one of our competitive scholarship rounds dedicated to international students. In each round, we receive hundreds of applications for a small number of scholarships. The standard of applicants is always extremely high and the selection process is very competitive. Applicants who rank highly have typically completed a master’s degree with a significant research component. They have also often published several papers in quality international journals.
