CSIRO Postgraduate Scholarship Opportunities for 2017
CSIRO's Postgraduate Scholarship Program provides opportunities in science and engineering for outstanding graduates who enrol each year at Macquarie. Scholarships are available to full-time students undertaking research which will lead to the award of a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD).
PhD students at CSIRO are supported by both a university supervisor and a CSIRO supervisor; allowing students to maintain and develop their university connections while being exposed to research in a working environment.
CSIRO offers full and top-up scholarships for periods of up to three years to high achieving students who are enrolled in a PhD program at an Australian university.
Top up scholarships are available to those doctoral students who gain or expect to gain an Australian Postgraduate Award (APA), or equivalent university award.
Recipients of Postgraduate Scholarships are generally required to be Australian Citizens or hold Permanent Residency status.
There are a number of priority topic areas for funding commencing in 2017. Applications close 31 October, so check them out at https://jobs.csiro.au/go/Students/990500/
