Dear Colleagues,

The selection and ranking of applicants within the University of Adelaide
is undertaken by the Graduate Scholarships Committee, using the criteria of
academic merit and research potential.
The ASI provides

   - Course tuition fees for two years for a Masters degree by Research and
   three years for a Doctoral research degree (an extension is possible for
   doctoral programs only),
   - An annual living allowance ($27,596 in 2019) for two years for a
   Masters degree by Research and three years for a Doctoral research degree
   (an extension is possible for doctoral programs only), and
   - For Student Visa (Subclass 500) visa holders the award provides
   compulsory standard Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) Worldcare policy
   for the student and their spouse and dependents (if any) for the standard
   duration of the student visa.  It does not cover the additional 6 month
   extended student visa period post thesis submission. If the award holder
   does not hold a subclass 500 visa then he/she is responsible for the cost
   of health insurance.

Note: The scholarship does not cover student visa application fees.

To consult the statistician after an experiment is finished is often merely
to ask him to conduct a post mortem examination. He can perhaps say
what the experiment died of. -Ronald A. Fisher.
