The CSL Florey Next Generation Award is a new award conferred to a current PhD candidate who has demonstrated outstanding capability, creativity and potential in the biomedical sciences and/or health and medical research. This award was developed from the CSL Young Florey Medal.

It has been developed to encourage and support promising health and medical researchers early in their careers, and to complement the Florey Medal which is awarded biennially to an Australian biomedical researcher for significant achievements in biomedical science or human health advancement, and is supported by CSL Limited.



Applicants must be current PhD students in their third or final year who have demonstrated outstanding capability, creativity and potential in the biomedical sciences and/or health and medical research. At the time of the application closing date the applicant must not have had their PhD conferred.

The scholarship includes a $20,000 prize, and two runner-up prizes of $2,500 each. The funds go to the individual and there is no restriction on how they can be used.
