Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) Postgraduate Scholarships

CSIRO's scholarship program provides opportunities in science and engineering for outstanding graduates enrolled in Australian tertiary institutions. Scholarships are available to full-time postgraduate students who are undertaking a higher degree by 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.

Scholarships will be offered to high achieving students who are enrolled in a PhD program at an Australian university. Recipients of postgraduate scholarships are generally required to be Australian Citizens or hold Permanent Residency status. Supplementary Postgraduate Scholarships are offered for periods of up to three years, and are available to doctoral students who gain or expect to gain a research training program scholarship (RTP) or equivalent university award. In some circumstances CSIRO fully funded scholarships may also be available, and are offered for up to four years.

Applications for the 2019 intake of the postgraduate scholarships program are now closed and will open again in August 2019.
