At CSIRO, we solve the greatest challenges through innovative science and technology. Our world-renowned successes include Wi-Fi, vaccines and relayed live footage of humankind's first steps on the moon. But it's tomorrow's innovations that excite us – wearable technology that alerts a doctor when you're sick, 3D printing body parts that save lives, examining the far reaches of space and so much more. CSIRO relies on bringing the best people to the greatest challenges with experts in engineering, computing, and the sciences, supported by professionals in law, human resources, communication and more.

The CSIRO Vacation Scholarship Program is designed to provide students with the opportunity to work on a real world project and expand their skills and knowledge while exploring ways to solve complex problems that make a real difference to our future. Participation in the Vacation Scholarship Program has influenced previous scholarship holders in their choice of further study and future career options. Many have gone on to pursue a PhD in CSIRO or to build a successful research career within CSIRO, a university or industry.

This year CSIRO has over 150 projects available across a range of areas for highly motivated students.
