The scholarship has been established to encourage postgraduate study in biotechnology. Subject to availability of funds, one scholarship will be offered each semester. No application is necessary as students who meet the eligibility criteria will be considered automatically.
Scholarships will be awarded, on the basis of academic merit, to those privately funded, fee paying international students currently enrolled full-time in the Master of Biotechnology or Master of Biotechnology Studies. Applicants must have satisfactorily completed at least 18 units of study in their first semester of the course, and be commencing their second semester of full-time study in the course in Semester 1 or Semester 2 of the year in which the award is made.
The scholarship provides fee remission of 25% of the annual standard international student tuition fee charged by Flinders University. The scholarship is awarded for one year of study. Scholarship holders must remain enrolled full-time in the year in which he scholarship is awarded. Students awarded scholarships under this scheme will be required to pay the balance of their tuition fees, together with all other study-related and living expenses, including Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC). Students who are in receipt of another scholarship are not eligible to receive one of the scholarships awarded under this scheme. The scholarship will terminate if a student is granted Australian permanent resident status.
