DSTG Summer Scholarships and Internships
Each year DST offers a limited number of scholarships over the University summer vacation period.
The Summer Vacation Placement (SVP) is a 12-week paid program for high-performing undergraduate Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) students. SVP students are supervised by DST staff and use skills gained at university to work on a current Defence project. The program commences late November/early December to coincide with the university summer break.
SVP provides successful applicants the opportunity to gain work experience in a large research organisation. Successful applicants undertake a research project, work at a DST laboratory under the supervision of science and technology staff, and receive a support payment.
Successful applicants are responsible for their own travel, accommodation and associated costs.
Projects may be available at any DST site across Australia.
Applications close 2 August 2020.
