The School’s Elite Students Program seeks to provide opportunities for our top-performing undergraduate students to engage and participate in current and leading-edge research activities across the School. At the beginning of each academic year, students admitted to an Engineering program with a ATAR greater than 98 will be invited to join the Faculty’s Elite Students Scheme. Students with weighted average marks of 85 or above in each of the two sessions of the previous academic year, will also be invited to join the scheme.
Eligible members of the UNSW Faculty of Engineering ‘Elite Students Program’ can apply for the award of a tax exempt scholarship to work with an academic supervisor (by mutual agreement) of their choice, focussing on a research project that may be initiated by the student, or that compliments an existing research program underway within the School. Students may elect to take up their CVEN Elite Scholarship on a full-time basis (35 hours per week) for a period of 12 working weeks over the summer, or on a part-time basis spanning session 1 and session 2 (17.5 hours per week) for a total of 24 weeks.
Please refer to the current CVEN Elite Student Scholarship application form for details regarding eligibility, tenure and benefits.
