The South Australian Government provides South Australians the opportunity to participate in the Southern Hemisphere Space Studies Program through fully funded scholarships. The scholarships, valued at $10,000 each, cover all tuition, accommodation and meal costs associated with participation in the program.

The program

The Southern Hemisphere Space Studies Program (SHSSP) is an intensive, five-week, live-in program run by the International Space University (ISU) and the University of South Australia (Uni SA). The program incorporates expert-led lectures, workshops and team projects aimed at bringing together innovative research and expertise in the international, intercultural and interdisciplinary aspects of space.

The program provides a well-rounded overview of the key principles and concepts of space science, applications and services, systems engineering and technology, policy, business and project management and legal and regulatory issues.

The program is open to professionals and managers in industry, government and defence, graduate researchers and undergraduate students who have completed at least two years full-time study.

Southern Hemisphere Space Studies Program scholarship recipients have been finalised for the latest round with the program concluding in February 2021. Watch this space for announcements about the next round of scholarships or email s
