The ARC Centre of Excellence Undergraduate Scholarships in Climate Extremes 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.

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

Scholarship projects may either run on a full-time basis over the summer or other mid-sem/trimester breaks, or part-time for the equivalent of six weeks full time work throughout the academic year. The scholarships are valued at $3,800.

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

If you are interested in a UNSW project, please also apply via the UNSW Faculty of Science summer scholarship scheme.

If you have any questions about our undergraduate research scholarships please contact Graduate Director- Dr. Melissa Hart (

Applications for this round of Undergraduate Scholarships close on Friday September 20th
