A limited number of University College Postgraduate Research Scholarships (UCPRS) are available to postgraduate research students each year. These are awarded on the basis of academic excellence and research potential; there are no quotas for particular disciplines. Competition for awards is intense and in recent years all new award holders had degrees of honours 1 standard or its equivalent.
The scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic excellence, with emphasis on the undergraduate degree and referee's reports, and are for full-time research study. Students completing an honours degree are encouraged to apply. Tenure is dependent on satisfactory progress. Applicants for an APA or IPRS are automatically considered for a UCPRS.
The scholarship provides an annual stipend at the APA rate ($23,728 per year in 2012) plus a top-up of $1,200 per year. Tenure is 2 years for a master and 3 years for PhD.
