A number of La Trobe University Full Fee Research Scholarships (LTUFFRS) are offered each year to outstanding international applicants. The scholarship will cover tuition fees for a period of two years for a Masters by research degree, and four years for a doctoral degree. Please note that this does not cover Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC).
The LTUFFRS is awarded on the basis of academic merit and a consideration of targeted areas of research strength at the University. It may be held concurrently with a university research scholarship and applicants for an LTUFFRS are advised to apply for a La Trobe University Graduate Research Scholarship (LTGRS).
Applications for LTUFFRS scholarships close annually on 30 September for the main scholarship round and 31 March for the mid-year scholarship round.
