Meritorious students are encouraged to apply for one of the scholarships offered by the Australian Government and/or Sydney University. International students might consider the International Postgraduate Research Scholarships (IPRS), while domestic students (Australian citizens, Australian permanent residents or New Zealand citizens) might look at the Australian Postgraduate Awards (APA) or University of Sydney Postgraduate Awards (UPA).

Please note that each post graduate student gets a $7,000 annual top-up scholarship from the School of Electrical and Information Engineering so the total is fairly attractive (around AU$30,000 per year, non taxable). The scholarships are for three years with possible extension of six months.
