The Royal Society of New South Wales is the oldest scientific society in Australia, tracing its history back to 1821. It has a long tradition of encouraging and supporting scientific research and leading intellectual life in the State.
The Council of the Royal Society has decided to fund the Royal Society of New South Wales Scholarships in order to acknowledge outstanding achievements by young researchers.

There is no application form but your application should include a statement of the significance of your project, an abstract of your work (ca 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 closing date for applications is 30th September of each year.
