Applications open now
The scholarships are linked to projects in the ARC Training Centre for CubeSats, Uncrewed Aerial Vehicles (UAV) and Their Applications (CUAVA).

Led by the University of Sydney, CUAVA aims to train the next generation of workers in cutting-edge advanced manufacturing, entrepreneurship and commercial space and UAV applications.

The centre is providing a number of scholarships for outstanding PhD scholars within the Faculties of Science or Engineering and Information Technologies where the focus of their research is aligned with the centre's projects.

In addition to independent research, a PhD with CUAVA incorporates:

  • entrepreneurship courses
  • UAV and CubeSat flight opportunities
  • 1 year placement at an industry partner
  • funded travel to selected conferences

The scholarships are available to support the living costs of students while completing their studies.

Of great commercial value and with very low costs, CubeSats are a new class of small satellites which, with UAVs, are disrupting the international satellite market. The expected outcome of this centre is to develop new instruments, technology and products to develop a world-class Australian industry in CubeSats, UAV and related products.
