Royal Society of NSW Scholarships
The Royal Society of New South Wales has a long tradition of encouraging and supporting scientific research and leading intellectual life in the State. The Council of the Royal Society has established the Royal Society of New South Wales Scholarships in order to acknowledge outstanding achievements by young researchers.
Applications for Royal Society of New South Wales Scholarships are sought from candidates working in a science-related field within New South Wales or the Australian Capital Territory. There is no restriction with respect to field of study and up to three Scholarships will be awarded each year. Applicants must be Australian citizens or permanent residents of Australia. Applicants must be enrolled as research students at a University in NSW or the ACT.
There is no application form, but your application should include a statement of the significance of your project, an abstract of your work (about 500 words) and a brief curriculum vitae, including details of your undergraduate study and any professional experience. Be sure to enclose a list of your publications. A statement of support from your supervisor, confirming details of your candidature must be included. The applications will be considered by a selection committee appointed by the Council of the Society and the decision will be made before the end of November The decision of the committee is final. The scholarships will be awarded on merit.
The award consists of a certificate acknowledging your achievement, a $500 prize and a complimentary year of membership of the Society. The winners will be expected to submit a paper to the Society's Journal and to deliver a short presentation of their work at the general meeting of the Society in February of the following year. The awards will be presented at this meeting.
