Developing the next generation of world-class scientists and engineers is critical to building Australia’s future science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) and innovation capable workforce, and CSIRO is contributing to this by increasing our engagement in education, training and mentoring of students.
Our postgraduate scholarship program provides opportunities in science and engineering for outstanding graduates who enrol each year at Australian tertiary institutions. Up to fifty scholarships are available for projects that align with CSIRO’s priority research areas.
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).
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. However, in fields in which there is a national skill shortage, scholarships may be awarded to overseas candidates, provided they meet Department of Immigration and Citizenship policy guidelines. International students must be able to provide evidence of admission to an Australian university.Act Now
