  • one page addressing the selection criteria (see GYSS2017-Participant-Selection-Criteria.pdf). Applicants should focus on their research and how it relates to the GYSS theme in their statement.
  • a short CV (no fixed format but should highlight research interests, education background, awards and key publications), and
  • a letter of support from a supervisor or Head of Research School (this should include confirmation that funding is available for flight costs).

ANU is expected to sponsor participants’ passage – all the other expenses will be provided by Singapore (see GYSS2017-Participant-Selection-Criteria.pdf). ANU PVC (Research & Research Training) will contribute $500 toward the flight costs of each participant. This will be paid via College Finance teams as a reimbursement.
