The ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes Undergraduate Summer Scholarships are highly competitive scholarships intended to provide undergraduate students from Australian universities an introduction to cutting-edge climate science research at one of our five universities, or our national partners- CSIRO, Bureau of Meteorology and Department of Environment.

Students should be in their second, third, or post-honours year and interested in pursuing honours or a postgraduate degree in climate system science.

Scholarships are available for students to conduct supervised research for a six-week period during the summer break from November to February, with a break around the holidays. The scholarships are valued at $3,800 for the six-week research project.

Scholarships are open to Australian and New Zealand citizens, Australian permanent residents, and international students currently enrolled in an Australian university.

Applications for summer 2017/18 scholarships are now closed.
