CSIRO is currently offering Postgraduate Top-Up Scholarships for students enrolled at an Australian University and holding a Research Training Program (RTP) scholarship or university equivalent, commencing in late 2021 or early 2022. These scholarships are for PhD projects in CSIRO priority research areas. The students’ research will be co-supervised by CSIRO and university researchers.

The CSIRO Postgraduate Scholarship Program provides opportunities in science and engineering for outstanding graduates at Australian tertiary institutions.

Each year, the Program supports postgraduate scholarships for students to work on a project relevant to one of several priority research areas. Students are co-supervised by researchers in an Australian university and CSIRO. PhD Top-Up Scholarships are available to PhD students who have gained (or are expected to gain) first or upper second class honours or equivalent in relevant research areas. Students must also expect to receive a Research Training Program scholarship (RTP) or equivalent scholarship commencing in the year of the CSIRO scholarship.


Applications are being sought in nominated priority research areas for the 2022 program and will support a number of new PhD Top-Up Scholarships.  For details on the opportunities available, please visit: www.csiro.au/Postgraduate-Scholarships.  Applications close 1 November 2021.
