Applications are now open for the 2014-2015 Summer Scholarships at the School of Physics, the University of Sydney, including the Sydney Institute for Astrophysics (SIfA)
*** Closing date for applications is 4pm on Friday 29 August 2014 ***
Summer Scholarships are offered to currently enrolled undergraduate students, who are performing at Credit level or above, to enable them to participate in research with one of the research groups in the School of Physics.  Among the wide range of research on offer is the opportunity to work with astrophysicists in the Sydney Institute for Astrophysics (SIfA) - see http://www.physics.usyd.edu.au/sifa/ .  The maximum duration is 6 weeks within the summer vacation period of December 2014 to February 2015.
Summer Scholars will be paid at the current Australian Postgraduate Award (APA) rate, which in 2014 is $488 per week.  If a recipient lives outside the Sydney Metropolitan Area, they may also be offered additional funds of up to $250 per week to cover accommodation costs.
All students are encouraged to apply, but preference will be given to undergraduate students in their senior years and those with prior research experience such as special project work.
Summer Scholars will be required to provide a short written report and/or a 15-minute talk at the conclusion of their project.
