The Association of Rhodes Scholars in Australia (ARSA) has established a Scholarship Fund for the purpose of bringing an overseas Commonwealth student to Australia to consult with leading scholars in their research area and undertake research in Australia relevant to their thesis project.
The Scholarship will enable the successful applicant to spend a period of between six and twelve months as a visiting postgraduate scholar at an Australian university, between 1 March 2014 and 28 February 2015, to undertake research towards the fulfillment of the requirements of the research higher degree for which he or she is currently enrolled.

The Scholarship will provide a grant-in-aid to a maximum of AU$20,000, inclusive of the contribution to the Scholarship holder’s traveling expenses to and from Australia.
The successful Scholarship holder will normally be in receipt of a stipend from their home university for the pursuit of their studies.
The award is open to applicants enrolled in a research higher degree program in a Commonwealth university outside Australia and approved by the Committee administering the Scholarship.
Awards are not normally made to students who at the time of their visit to Australia will be in the first ten (10) months or the final six (6) months of candidature.
Applicants must be Commonwealth citizens and may not be graduates of an Australian or New Zealand university. Current and former Rhodes Scholars are not eligible to apply.
The Scholarship is not available to support students who wish to enroll for a degree in an Australian university. Holders of the Scholarship remain enrolled in a research higher degree program at an overseas Commonwealth university.
