About the University of Sydney and Scholarship

Why attend the University of Sydney? The University of Sydney provides an outstanding educational experience by fusing recognized academic achievement with a dynamic and varied campus life. Students may take advantage of a rich learning environment and learn from subject-matter specialists thanks to the school’s illustrious reputation and top-notch instructors.

In Sydney, Australia, there is a public research institution called The University of Sydney (USYD), usually referred to as Sydney University or just Sydney Uni. It is one of the country’s six sandstone institutions and the oldest university in Australia, having been established in 1850. To provide bachelor’s, master’s, and doctorate degrees, the university has eight academic faculties and university schools. One of the first institutions of higher learning in the world to accept students exclusively based on academic ability and to welcome women on an equal footing with men.


The institution has alumni and teachers that include two Crafoord laureates and five Nobel laureates. Eight Australian prime ministers, including the current Anthony Albanese, two governors-general of Australia, thirteen premiers of New South Wales, and 24 judges of the High Court of Australia, including five chief justices, have all received their educations from the institution. 19 Gates Scholars and 110 Rhodes Scholars, respectively, have come from the university.

With the help of this scholarship, overseas candidates will have the chance to start their postgraduate studies at the University of Sydney. This scholarship is intended to help a student pursuing a Ph.D. in the School of Life and Environmental Sciences of the Faculty of Science, whose research focuses on protein design, particularly modifying the activity of human transcription factors.

The University of Sydney, The University of Queensland, and The University of Melbourne have a Multi-Institutional Agreement that provides funding for this scholarship as part of the NHMRC Ideas Grant program for the project “New approaches to cancer treatment through mRNA display.”
