*** ANU - RSAA Summer Research Scholarships 2014 ***

Applications are now open for the 2014 Summer Research Scholarships at the
Australian National University's Research School of Astronomy & Astrophysics.
Please draw this scheme to the attention of your undergraduate students, and
encourage them to apply.

The closing date for applications is 31st August 2014.

The SRS program provides an exceptional opportunity for undergraduate students to
get a taste of graduate life by participating in a research project under the supervision
of staff at Mount Stromlo Observatory. The program will last for approximately 8 weeks
from late November 2014 until late January 2015.

A Summer Research Scholarship at RSAA includes full accommodation and board
on the ANU campus, a weekly allowance, and return travel to Canberra. There will be
a lecture series on contemporary topics in astrophysics, and scholars will also be given
the opportunity to visit the telescopes and facilities at Siding Spring Observatory, Parkes
and Narrabri. The program is open to suitably qualified undergraduate students in the
third or final year of their degrees who are currently enrolled at an Australian or
New Zealand university. Outstanding second-year students may also be considered.
