About the Scholarship
CSIRO Alumni Scholarship in Physics aims to connect the brightest young
physicists or mathematicians to a leading research centre overseas or in
Australia. Research in physics and mathematics is fundamental for Australia's
future. The founders of this scholarship know that early experience in leading
overseas laboratories greatly benefits the graduate embarking on a research
career and Australian science.
A post-graduate travel scholarship, which will be used to fund travel costs to visit and/or conduct

Four distinguished scientists
On 21 March 2013 the science and physics community lost four of their finest in a tragedy beyond imagination. Drs. John Dunlop, Tony Farmer, Gerry Haddad and Don Price were four great gentlemen, wonderful, dedicated scientists and humanitarians of the highest order. All had distinguished careers at CSIRO, all influential in bringing to industry new and novel techniques and products. Even in retirement, they continued to work for the organisation in an honorary capacity making major contributions in the application of advanced physics to solve significant problems in manufacturing industries. They were leaders and mentors in the physics community, inspiring those around them and they enjoyed nothing more than passing on their skills and knowledge to younger scientists. It is fitting to honour their memories through the establishment of a student scholarship based on academic achievement.
