Outline

The SQA Undergraduate Research Scholarships provide talented undergraduate students with an invaluable opportunity to get research experience in quantum technology. Candidates undertake an exciting 6-week project from one of SQA's four partner universities, supervised by a leading quantum researcher.

The aim of the program is to provide opportunities to students partway through their undergraduate degree to develop their research skills and inspire them to consider further quantum technology research or related activities in the future.

To ensure the future of quantum is gender diverse, preference may be given to female-identifying students. We strongly encourage female-identifying students to apply!

Eligibility
To be eligible for the opportunity you must be:

  • Applicants must be enrolled in an undergraduate program at an SQA partner university (Macquarie University, UNSW Sydney, the University of Sydney, University of Technology Sydney).

  • Applicants must have completed a minimum of the equivalent to 1.5 years of full-time study towards their undergraduate degree by the time they commence their research project.

  • Students who were previously awarded an SQA Undergraduate Research Scholarship are not eligible to apply.

  • Successful candidates cannot hold another similar research scholarship during the research project period.

  • Applicants may identify with any gender, but preference may be given to female-identifying students.

Selection
Scholarships will be awarded based on:

  • Academic Merit

  • Suitability to the projects offered

  • Applications will close at 11:59pm AEDT Monday 1 November 2021
