Olin J Eggen Scholarship

The Olin Eggen Scholarship was established in 2000 to commemorate the contributions of the late Professor Olin J Eggen. Professor Eggen was Director of the Mt Stromlo Observatory, Professor of Astronomy at ANU and one the great figures of modern optical astronomy, particularly in the areas of how the galaxy was formed and how stars evolve. Professor Eggen was very keen to encourage international collaboration in the field of astronomy and increase the access of  the Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics internationally. This scholarship therefore, supports for outstanding international students seeking to pursue PhD research at the Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics.  This Scholarship continues to build and we would welcome further donations to support Astronomy and Professor Eggen's work.
