Scholarship description

The CSIRO Postgraduate Scholarship Program provides opportunities in science and engineering for outstanding graduates at Australian tertiary institutions.

Each year, the Program supports postgraduate scholarships for students to work on a project relevant to one of several priority research areas. Students are co-supervised by researchers in an Australian university and CSIRO. Top-up PhD Scholarships are available to PhD students who have gained (or expected to gain) first class honours or equivalent in relevant research areas. Students must also expect to receive a Research Training Program scholarship (RTP) or equivalent scholarship commencing in the year of the CSIRO scholarship. Full scholarships may be available in certain circumstances.

Eligibility

CSIRO offers full and top-up Postgraduate Scholarships for periods of up to three years. Opportunities will be offered to high achieving students who have received an offer to commence a PhD program at an Australian university.

Top up scholarships are available to those students who gain or expect to gain a Research Training Program scholarship (RTP) or equivalent university award (at UQ, the RTP is awarded under the UQGSS). In some circumstances full scholarships may also be available.

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.
