Applications are now closed for the 2018 Alumni Scholarship in Physics. Applications for 2019 will open later this year.

About the scholarship

The CSIRO Alumni Scholarship in Physics aims to connect the brightest young physicists or mathematicians to a leading research centre overseas or in Australia. Research in physics and mathematics is fundamental for Australia's future. The founders of this scholarship know that early experience in leading overseas laboratories greatly benefits the graduate embarking on a research career and Australian science.

The scholarship was established in conjunction with generous donations from the family, friends and colleagues of Drs John Dunlop, Tony Farmer, Gerry Haddad and Don Price to honour their memory.

The award

The CSIRO Alumni Scholarship in Physics will be a post-graduate travel scholarship, which will be used to fund travel costs to visit and/or conduct research in an overseas or interstate institution such as a university or research establishment of international standing. The scholarship of $5000 is for the travel nominated in the application and must be commenced before end of the year that the reward is received.

Applications for 2018 are now closed. Applications for 2019 will open later this year.
