Applications for 2013 AIG student bursaries are now open.

The Australian Institute of Geoscientists’ Student Bursary Program was initiated to promote and support geoscience research and education in Australia. The Bursary Program began in 2001 to mark the 20th Anniversary of the Australian Institute of Geoscientists (AIG), and since then the AIG has awarded 129 bursaries to geoscience students in Australian universities. In 2013 the AIG is again offering bursaries to Postgraduate, Honours and Third Year undergraduate geoscience students.

The 2013 Bursary awards, which have values between A$1000 and A$3000, are funded by the AIG and the generous support of corporate sponsors and donations from AIG members to the AIG Geoscience Education Foundation.  Contributions to the foundation are tax deductible.

Applicants must be current AIG members, Australian citizens or permanent residents and be enrolled in geoscience studies at an Australian university.

Applications for Honours and Postgraduate bursaries must be received by 27th June 2013.  Third year bursary applications must be received by 1st August 2013.
