Each year CSIRO operates a program of vacation scholarships that is aimed mainly at third-year undergraduates. The scholarships provide students with the opportunity to carry out a real piece of scientific research over a 10-week period.
Placements are full time and will typically be for 10 weeks from 27 November 2017 to 2 February 2018.
Participation in the Vacation Scholarship Program has influenced previous scholarship holders in their choice of further study and future career options. Many have gone on to pursue a PhD in CSIRO or to build a successful research career within CSIRO, a university or industry.
Scholarships are available in topics such as plant and animal molecular biology, physiology, genetics and food science plus “digital agriculture”.
We are keen to attract the best students from around the country to the many CSIRO sites that are offering scholarships. The scholarships and projects available this year can be applied for via the CSIRO Careers web site, which can be found here:Download flyer (PDF)
