  2. Applicants then need to apply through the Victoria University International online application system. Please make sure you identify yourself as a Victoria University International Postgraduate Research Scholarship (VUIPRS) applicant.

The main VU scholarship round for Australian and international applicants opens in August and closes in late October. The mid-year scholarship opens in April and closes at the end of May.
