International Postgraduate Research Scholarship (IPRS)
"The purpose of the International Postgraduate Research Scholarships (IPRS) is to attract top quality overseas postgraduate students to areas of research strength into Australia's higher education institutions.
The scheme offers students the opportunity to obtain a postgraduate qualification and to gain experience with leading Australian researchers. Successful applicants must be enrolled in areas of research concentration where the university has research strength and has concentrated its research resources. Such areas are expected to have a number of senior researchers and IPRS students are included in research teams. IPRS scholarships cover tuition fees at individual institutions and health insurance premiums for a period of two years for a Masters Research Degree and three years for a Doctoral degree, with a possible extension in certain circumstances."
Sponsored by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the "Eiffel" Scholarships are awarded to students who are interested in pursuing studies in France in the disciplines of business/management, law/political sciences/administration, and science/engineering.

"Even though tuition fees tend to be an exception in Germany, studying or researching at a German higher education institution still needs to be properly financed. There will be costs to face, whether for books, rent or just general living expenses. A scholarship or grant may be the answer for those who don't have the necessary financial resources. Various sources of financial support are available. A look at the DAAD scholarship database will show you what is on offer."
