Australian Institute of Marine Science at JCU Scholarships for International students

AIMS and JCU have a long and rich collaboration history, together generating knowledge and solutions to issues around marine biodiversity, sustainable development, and management of coral reefs, coasts and river catchments.  Both organisations seek scientific outcomes that translate into environmental, social and economic benefit.  To achieve this, they apply expertise in developing new fundamental knowledge and transforming scientific understanding into the design of practical solutions such as environmental management strategies and improved engineering and policy formulation.  Our combined intellectual capital and cutting edge infrastructure provide a rich environment where graduate students can conduct marine research that is not possible elsewhere, and see it translated from knowledge into real world outcomes.
