Dear colleagues,

*** ANU - RSAA Summer Research Scholarships 2015 ***

Applications are now open for the 2015 Summer Research Scholarships at the
Australian National University's Research School of Astronomy & Astrophysics.
I would be grateful if you could draw this scheme to the attention of your
undergraduate students, and encourage them to apply.

The closing date for applications is 31st August 2015.

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 Monday 23 November 2015 until Friday 22 January 2016.

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 are usually also
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.
