Summer Research Scholarships (formerly Vacation Scholarships)

Each year the School of Mathematics and Statistics and the Faculty of Science award a number of summer research scholarships for tenure in the summer vacation (December – February). These scholarships are typically advertised in August.

As well as scholarships offered by the School of Mathematics and Statistics and the Science Faculty, there are scholarships offered by AMSI (the Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute) which are tenable in the School. Before applying directly to AMSI you need to apply within the University of Sydney.

Applications for AMSI VRS 2022/23 is open from 31 August 2022 to 14 September 2022.

If you are a 2nd or 3rd year student at the University of Sydney and have an HD average in advanced maths/stats units then you are eligible to apply for the AMSI VRS. A list of projects can be found at here. Before applying directly to AMSI you need to apply within the University of Sydney:

If you are a University of Sydney student please apply using this online application form USyd students.
If you are not a University of Sydney student please apply using this online application form external students.

All applicants to the AMSI VRS are encouraged to also apply for the Denison scholarship when it opens. Application for the Denison scholarships is through the Faculty of Science Denison Research Scholarships and Science Research Experience Scholarships. The value of the AMSI VRS Scholarship will be topped up to the same level as the Denison Scholarship.
