Undergraduate Degree Scholarships


The 2015 Science and Industry Endowment Fund (SIEF) Scholarships Program includes up to eight Undergraduate Degree scholarships that will be available to Science/ICT or Engineering undergraduates who are of Indigenous background or located in rural or remote locations and of low socio-economic background. Students must be undertaking a Science/ICT or Engineering degree which includes elements of mathematics, statistics or computation


Selection is via a 2 stage process with SIEF seeking expressions of interest from Australian universities to participate in the Undergraduate Degree Scholarship Program (Stage 1). Participating Universities will then identify suitable candidates (Stage 2).


The deadline for applications (stage 1) is 5pm AEDT 2 April 2014.  SIEF will not be accepting applications that do not comply with the funding rules.

Further information about the 2015 program including the application form are available on the SIEF Website.
