Scholarship Description: The Melbourne International Fee Remission Scholarship (MIFRS) is awarded to international students wishing to undertake graduate research degree studies at the University of Melbourne. MIFRSs are funded by the University with each faculty having a limited number of awards.
Number of awards (s): Each year the University of Melbourne offers about 150 MIFRSs.
Duration of award (s): –The duration of a scholarship will be reduced if a study was undertaken towards the degree before commencement of the scholarship, during suspension of the scholarship (e.g. unpaid Leave of Absence), or during the tenure of a previous Australian Postgraduate Course Award (or APA).
-The maximum scholarship tenure excludes periods of leave (apart from overseas study leave). All durations are expressed as FTE (i.e. full-time equivalent.)
–IPRS and MIFRS recipients often hold a MIRS (a living allowance scholarship) as well. The MIRS cannot be extended beyond 3.5 years for PhD and other research doctorate students. This means that if a second 6 month extension to the IPRS or MIFRS is approved, the student would need to cover their own living expenses for the final 6 months.
–Note that completion of a masters degree while holding a scholarship does not guarantee the award of a scholarship for research doctorate (eg. PhD) study.
What does it cover? The MIFRS covers full tuition costs, but not overseas student health care.
