The living allowance scholarship is co-funded by the Graduate School and the enrolling school or institute.  Therefore nomination for this scholarship depends on the funding being available within your enrolling school or institute.

The UQI scholarships are awarded competitively, based on merit, to outstanding international students undertaking a research higher degree.
