About the University of Sydney and Scholarship
The University of Sydney (USYD), commonly referred to as Sydney University or Sydney Uni, is an Australian public research university that is situated in Sydney. It is one of the six sandstone institutions in Australia and the country’s oldest university, having been established in 1850. One of the first colleges to accept students entirely based on academic performance, it also welcomed women on the same terms as males. The university provides bachelor’s, master’s, and doctorate degrees through its eight academic faculties and university schools.
On 24 September 1850, the institution Sydney Act 1850 (NSW) was passed, and on 1 October 1850, Governor Sir Charles Fitzroy gave his assent, establishing the institution. Wentworth was included in the governor’s proclamation among three ministers of religion as one of the founding members of the university’s senate.
The university was established on October 11, 1852, two years later, in the Big Schoolroom of what is now Sydney Grammar School. John Woolley served as the first principal, while John Smith was the first professor of chemistry and experimental physics. The initial grad was Sir William Charles Windeyer. The institution was the first in Australia and among the earliest secular, public, and non-religious universities in the British Empire. The institution was granted a royal charter by Queen Victoria on February 27, 1858, granting its degrees the same standing and respect as those awarded to other universities in the United Kingdom.
Awards provide students the chance to further their education. The University of Sydney is offering international postgraduate research scholarships in radio transients and variables as a way to aid students.

The Sydney Institute for Astronomy in the School of Physics in the Faculty of Science is funding this scholarship through an ARC Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA) to assist a student pursuing a Ph.D. there with a radio transients concentration.
