• Delivering and funding national mathematical sciences research training

The AMSI Research and Higher Education national programs support undergraduate students through to early-career researchers and professionals by supplementing university curriculums, providing discipline-specific careers advice, building strong science communications skills, creating networking opportunities and facilitating collaborations.


Vacation Research Scholarships

AMSI funds and supports undergraduate students from around Australia to spend their summer holidays (December–February) working on supervised research projects. AMSI VRS is open to intending honours and masters students and is a fantastic opportunity to broaden academic interests and experience. AMSI Vacation Research Scholars undertake research, build a project, submit a blog, and present to their peers and supervisors at AMSIConnect, the exclusive student conference held in February.



AMSI BioInfoSummer is Australia’s leading bioinformatics and computational biology training event.  This four-day conference brings together advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students, researchers and professionals from all disciplines. Attendees develop their bioinformatics skills, national networks and employability.


Summer School

AMSI Summer School is the biggest maths event in Australia for honours and postgraduate students in the mathematical sciences. This four-week program offers eight exciting subjects by specialist lectures from around Australia.The school also features a number of program extras including social events, a careers session, public lecture and Diversity in STEM events.


Scientific Events

AMSI and AustMS provide joint funding for mathematical and statistical workshops and conferences held in Australia, with the additional chance for organisers to nominate an international speaker to visit the Sydney Mathematical Research Institute (SMRI).


ACE Network

Every year, AMSI Member institutions around Australia broadcast free mathematical seminars, short courses and Honours and Masters subjects over the Advanced Collaborative Environment (ACE) Network, enabling students and academics to participate remotely by videoconference.
