The University Of Newcastle Australia Research Scholarships For Indian Students

INTRODUCTION

University of Newcastle Postgraduate Research Scholarships (UNRS External) funded from external sources (e.g., research grants) become available throughout the year, and are advertised on the Postgraduate Scholarship Database for Australia at www.jason.edu.au/. These scholarships are available to both domestic and international students and are usually tenable for two years for Masters degree candidates and three years for PhD candidates, subject to satisfactory academic progress. These awards provide a living allowance ($22,500 p.a. in 2010), and may also provide a relocation allowance and thesis allowance for the candidate (depending on the funding source).

COURSE AND ELIGIBILITY

Applicants must meet eligibility requirements before the closing date and must have an offer of admission to a research higher degree. Applicants for all schemes must have completed at least four years of undergraduate study and have attained Honours Class 1 or equivalent. Applicants whose first language is not English must submit evidence of attaining: * TOEFL score of at least 575 (minimum score of 4.5 in the TWE) - paper based test. Computer based test requires score of at least 232 (minimum score of 4.5 Essay Rating); * IELTS score of at least 6.5 with no individual subtest score less than 6.

CAREER PROSPECTS

Scholarship applications will be accepted between 1 January and 31 August each year. To apply for a scholarship you must answer the relevant questions on the application form. Scholarships are awarded to eligible applicants on the basis of academic merit and through a highly competitive process. The award of research scholarships may also take into account areas of research strength or areas of research in line with the strategic directions of the University. The research scholarship criteria for all faculties will have the common components of academic achievement and research/scholarly attainments (relative to opportunity). Applicants may elect to be considered in more than one discipline area. A complete separate application must be lodged for each discipline, and each will be considered separately within the relevant faculty. An offer of admission to candidature and/or offer of scholarship in one discipline will not be transferable to another. Applicants with an incomplete award at the same level who have completed more than two full-time equivalent semesters towards a research Master or more than four full-time equivalent semesters towards a PhD at the commencement of the following academic year will not be considered for the award of a scholarship. First round scholarship offers will be sent to the applicants correspondence address by mid-December. Offers must be accepted within 14 days, therefore it is important that applicants ensure they collect mail from their correspondence address. Any second-round offers will be made in early February. Scholarships should normally commence and enrolment should be finalised by 31 August in the year for which the offer of a place was made. Scholarship recipients must normally be enrolled full-time in their research higher degree.
