Royal Society of Tasmania
for TASMANIAN STUDENTS 2020
The Royal Society of Tasmania offers bursaries for Tasmanian secondary/senior secondary students who have been selected through a competitive process to represent Australia at an international event. The amount of each bursary may be up to $1,000.
What is the Royal Society of Tasmania?
The Society has been in active existence since 1843 and we have continued to achieve our aim of ‘advancing knowledge’ in a wide variety of ways. The bursaries are one way in which we support the youth of Tasmania.
Who can apply?
In 2018 bursaries were offered in the fields of science, mathematics and engineering. In 2019 the bursary program was broadened to also support students selected through a competitive process for international events in the arts, humanities and social sciences.
What is the closing date?
There is no closing date for applications, as applications are considered on a rolling basis throughout the year.

Students need to send a written application including:
- a brief descriptor of the international summer school or event they have been selected to attend, including dates and costs
- a copy of the recommendation from the Australian selection event or activity they were selected to attend
