For Future Students

Summer Research Scholarships (formerly Vacation Scholarships)

Each year the School of Mathematics and Statistics awards a small number of summer research scholarships for tenure in the summer vacation (November – February). These scholarships are usually advertised in July / August.

As well as scholarships offered by the School of Mathematics and Statistics itself, there are scholarships offered by AMSI (the Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute) which are tenable in the School.

The Faculty of Science is in the process of creating the Denison Research Scholarships which will replace the Vacation Scholarships.

The program is open to both current domestic and international University of Sydney students as well as domestic students from other Australian Universities and New Zealand. Each scholarship is valued at $513 (in accordance with 2017 RTP rate) per week for the duration of the project. Students living outside of metropolitan Sydney may also be eligible for an additional scholarship - valued at $250 per week for the duration of the Denison Research Scholarship project - to assist with travel and relocation costs.

For more information visit the Faculty website which some time in August will give the instructions on how to apply.
