Melbourne International Fee Remission Scholarships (MIFRS)
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 to award.
Each year the University of Melbourne offers about 150 MIFRSs.
Benefits and conditions
The MIFRS covers full tuition costs, but not overseas student health care.
To be considered for a MIFRS, applicants need to apply for scholarship and candidature in a graduate research degree course (eg. masters by research, PhD or other research doctorate) at the University of Melbourne. Further information concerning the eligibility criteria can be found in the conditions.
Selection will be based on the eligibility criteria and academic merit. Scholarship assessment guidelines, tips for applicants and other funding opportunities may be found on the Scholarships Resources webpage.
Please refer to the How to Apply section of the Graduate Research Scholarships website.
Applicants will be advised via email as soon as an outcome to their scholarship application is determined.
Closing date and timelines
Applicants should submit their application for admission and scholarship by 31 August. Applications received after this date will only be considered for any MIFRSs that remain at the time the application is assessed for scholarship.
For University of Melbourne students who are currently enrolled in the course for which they would like MIFRS cover, please apply via the Student Portal.
Applicants are encouraged to submit their application and all required documents well before the closing date.
Please refer to the table of timelines section for international applicants.
