Young Scientists Exchange Programme

Published: Monday 2nd March 2015

The Australian Government Department of Industry and Science, along with the Chinese Government, jointly fund the Young Scientists Exchange Programme (YSEP) for early to mid-career researchers. The program aims to facilitate future long term science, technology and innovation collaboration between Australia and China, by bringing together future science leaders from both countries to foster long term relationships.

More information about the YSEP is available on the Department's website.

Fully completed applications should be submitted to the Research Office at least seven working days prior to the funding body's closing date.

For information on internal requirements for submitting a research grant please see ACU research grants website.


The YSEP is proposed to run for the next four years. The call for applications to the next round of YSEP is expected open in the second half of 2015.
