There are places for up to 30 participants from anywhere in Australia. 

To be eligible, you must be enrolled at an Australian University. We encourage you to apply in your Final Year of your BSc or in your Honours or coursework Masters year.

Applications from early career professionals in industry (typically less than two years), or with government geological surveys and organisations are also welcome.

International students enrolled at Australian Universities are eligible to apply.

Selection process

If we receive more applications than there are places in the course, selection will be based on:

  • your responses to the questions on the application form 
  • information provided by your referees.

See the application form. Note that you will need to invite two referees to provide a reference via the online form.
