The UQ Graduate School manages a number of scholarship schemes that provide financial support for tuition fees, living costs and travel which enables you to focus on your research.

Fees and costs

You can apply at any time for admission to research higher degree programs. However, candidates who wish to be considered for a UQ Graduate School tuition fee and/or living allowance scholarship should note that the HDR Scholarship Selection Committee meets twice a year to select the recipients.
