Summer Vacation Scholarships for third year students

The School of Mathematical Sciences will be offering several Summer Vacation Scholarships on a competitive basis for the summer vacation period. Some of these scholarships are sponsored by the Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute (AMSI).

You MUST apply for these summer vacation scholarships through the Monash Scholarships website at: FINAL closing date for the applications for projects at the School of Mathematical Sciences is normallyin early October.

Currently, these summer vacation scholarships will carry a stipend of $380 per week for up to six weeks (dates flexible) and are primarily aimed at students who have completed three years of an appropriate undergraduate degree, and may be entering Honours in the subsequent year, though exceptional second year students about to enter third year may also be considered.
