- CSIRO Flagship Postgraduate Scholarship Program
The Flagships offer full and top-up Flagship Postgraduate Scholarships to high quality students who are enrolled in a PhD at an Australian university, and who will be working on a project which is directly relevant to a Flagship.
Top-up scholarships will be the norm. Valued at A$7 000 per annum, they are available to PhD students who have gained (or expect to gain) an Australian Postgraduate Award (APA) or equivalent scholarship.
In some circumstances full scholarships will be available. These offer a stipend of the equivalent of an APA plus CSIRO's top-up amount of A$7 000 per annum for three years.

Applications for Flagship postgraduate scholarships will only be accepted from full-time students enrolled in an eligible Australian Higher Education Institution1 during the term of the award. While the normal expectation is that scholarships will be full time, they may be converted from full time to part time where both the university and CSIRO supervisors agree that there are compelling reasons for this and the APA, if any, is also converted to part time.
For the year the scholarship is to begin, students must have, or expect to gain, first class honours or equivalent in relevant research areas. If applying for the top-up scholarship, they must also expect to receive an Australian Postgraduate Award (APA) or equivalent scholarship commencing in that year. If applying for the full scholarship, a student cannot receive both an APA/equivalent and a CSIRO scholarship.
International students are eligible to apply for Flagship scholarships but they must be able to show evidence of admission to an Australian university, as well as evidence that either their living costs or international student tuition fees are being covered by another scholarship (such as a university scholarship) or from private funds.
Joint supervision of students by a university and a CSIRO supervisor is required, and such joint supervisory arrangements must be consistent with the Higher Degree by Research Regulations of the host university. In most cases the primary supervisor will be the university supervisor.
