Undergraduate Summer Research Scholarships

The ARC Centre of Excellence Undergraduate Summer Scholarships in Climate System Science are highly competitive scholarships intended to provide undergraduate students from Australian universities an introduction to cutting-edge climate science research at one of our five universities, or our national partners- CSIRO, Bureau of Meteorology and Department of Environment.

Students should be in their second, third, or post-honours year and interested in pursuing honours or a postgraduate degree in climate system science.

Scholarships are available for students to conduct supervised research for a six-week period during the summer break from November to February, with a break around the holidays. The scholarships are valued at $3,800 for the six-week research project.

Scholarships are open to Australian and New Zealand citizens, Australian permanent residents, and international students currently enrolled in an Australian university.

Applications for summer 2017/18 scholarships are now OPEN, click here to apply.

Applications will close September 15th.
