The Sydney Quantum Academy (SQA) PhD Scholarship program fosters excellence amongst postgraduate candidates undertaking research training in quantum technology. SQA PhD scholarships provide successful candidates with an opportunity to work with leading researchers. Candidates will undertake their PhD studies at one of the SQA partner universities: the University of Sydney, UNSW Sydney, University of Technology Sydney, and Macquarie University (Sydney, Australia).
Two scholarship streams are currently open: SQA Primary PhD Scholarship and SQA Supplementary PhD Scholarship.
The SQA Primary PhD Scholarship provides a stipend of AUD 35,000 per annum for a maximum duration of four years. An additional AUD 5,000 per annum will be granted to successful applicants for career development.
The SQA Supplementary PhD Scholarship is open to any PhD candidate commencing or within the first year of their PhD program. PhD candidates must also already hold a primary PhD stipend of AUD 33,000 or less.
Scholarships are open to Australian citizens, permanent residents and international applicants.
Applicants are expected to apply for or be enrolled in a full-time PhD program at an SQA partner university. PhD projects must be in a field related to quantum technology. Please note that candidates will not be offered an SQA PhD scholarship unless they are enrolled in this program in time to commence in the first half of 2021.
PhD candidates must have the support of an academic staff member at one of the partner universities.
