DSTO Undergraduate Scholarships
Defence Science and Technology Organisation (DSTO) sponsors a scholarship program with the Centre of Expertise in Photonics (CoEP) to encourage young scientists to pursue studies in photonics, potentially leading to a career in defence research and development.
This program provides annual scholarships to assist Australian undergraduate students in meeting their educational costs and to recognise excellence. Scholarships are available for each year level, from 1st year to honours. Actual awards in each year vary to recognise the best students. Awards are made on the basis of marks received in the previous year (year 12 results in the case of the first year award).
Congratulations to Hannes Griesser, Sophie Hollitt, Myles Clark, Georgia Mansell, William Thurlow and Peter Edwards who are the winners of the DSTO Undergraduate Photonic Scholarships for 2010. These awards were presented to the students at a ceremony held on 22 July 2010 at DSTO Edinburgh.
The students and their proud parents got to hear from acting Deputy Chief Defence Scientist Tony Lindsay about the exciting cutting-edge science and technology DSTO engages in, and had a tour of some of DSTO’s facilities. We hope this marks just the start of an illustrious career in photonics, and both the CoEP/IPAS & DSTO look forward to working with you in the future.
