This year's scholarships run from November 2012 to February 2013.
Placements are full-time for a period of 8-12 weeks, and are available at various CMSE sites in Victoria (Clayton, Parkville, Highett or Geelong) and New South Wales (Lindfield and North Ryde). Succesful applicants will be paid a stipend of A$705 per week for the duration of the scholarship.
Students who complete a vacation scholarship may have the opportunity to do their PhDs, gain employment in CSIRO or universities, or pursue other interesting careers.
Scholarships are available to Australian Residents who are enrolled in an honours degree in Science or Engineering and have completed at least two years of undergraduate study.
Succesful applicants will be selected according to their interests and the project needs of the supervisor, taking into account the student's academic merit.
