2009 / 2010 Fulbright CSIRO Postgraduate Scholarship to Australia

[This announcement was forwarded to me from the Australian-American Fulbright Commission, who supported me as a Fulbright scholar for my post-graduate study at Princeton. I recommend the Fulbright programs, especially for students who plan to maintain close ties to their home country while also enjoying the benefits of studying abroad. – T.]

A partnership of the Australian-American Fulbright Commission and the CSIRO National Research Flagships program.

Work in Australia on major challenges and opportunities in climate, energy, water, health and more. Gain international experience and build collaborations in Australia as part of your American Postgraduate studies in science working with Australia’s most ambitious scientific research program, the CSIRO National Research Flagships.

Australia’s leading and largest science research organisation, the Commonwealth Scientific Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), is offering Fulbright scholars the opportunity to work in Australia as part of your American PhD program.

Applications are now open for the 2009 / 2010 Fulbright CSIRO Postgraduate Scholarship to Australia. Valued at up to A$34,000, this scholarship supports an American citizen to undertake 8-12 months postgraduate research in Australia related to their American PhD with one of the nine CSIRO National Research Flagships.

The 2009 / 2010 scholarship may be started anytime between 1 July 2009 and 30 June 2010. Applicants will be assessed by their academic and professional merit; clearly defined and achievable projects; and the potential for their projects to add value and build collaborations between Australia and the U.S.

Background information on CSIRO, areas of potential research focus on which Fulbright Scholars can work, and contacts at CSIRO with whom you can explore your research options can be found at http://www.csiro.au/org/FulbrightCSIROscholarship.html. Information on the Fulbright Scholarship Program in Australia and scholar’s experiences can be found at http://www.fulbright.com.au.

Applications for this scholarship are through the normal U.S. Postgraduate application process via your U.S. university, or direct to the Institute for International Education (IIE).

Applications close in the U.S between early September to late October (check with your U.S. university or IIE).
