For Prospective 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 has created the Denison Research Scholarships which replaces the Vacation Scholarships of the School of Mathematics and Statistics.

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.

In addition, to be considered for the AMSI Scholarship you need to submit your Denison scholarship application before Tue 12 Sep 23:59, earlier than the usual Denison deadline.
