2017/18 CASS Undergraduate Vacation Scholarship Program Applications Now Open


CSIRO Astronomy and Space Science (CASS) is offering 12 scholarships to undergraduate students to work with us over the 2017-2018 summer. Projects are available in astrophysics, engineering, computing and education with seven based at our headquarters in Marsfield, Sydney and five at Kensington in Perth.

Successful scholars will work on a project under the supervision of one or more of our staff, learn about a range of astrophysics topics and radio astronomy techniques and engineering and have the opportunity to visit one of our observatories.

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 pay $1462.77 per fortnight for the 10-week program.
Travel assistance is available for successful applicants with a return trip to either Sydney or Perth.

CASS manages Australia's leading facilities for radio astronomy and spacecraft tracking, we're internationally renowned for our radio astronomy research and engineering expertise, and we're helping to shape the Square Kilometre Array. For more information please see our website at Astronomy and space<http://www.csiro.au/en/Research/Astronomy>

To be eligible to apply you must be an Australian or New Zealand Citizen, Australian Permanent Resident or an international student who has full work rights for the 10 weeks duration (does not require visa sponsorship).
