Vacation scholarships with CSIRO’s Data61 run over the Australian summer and offer talented undergraduate students the opportunity to join in our research and collaborate with our leading researchers and innovators.
You can be part of helping to solve big, complex problems that make a real difference to our future. We spark off each other, learn from each other, trust each other and collaborate in a supportive, rewarding and inclusive environment.
Placements are full time and typically begin in late November or early December and can be from 8 - 12 weeks in length.
Participation in the Vacation Studentship Program has influenced previous scholarship holders in their choice of further study and future career options. Many have gone on to pursue a PhD in collaboration with CSIRO or to build a successful research career within CSIRO, a university or industry.
