Each year, the Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics (RSAA) in the ANU College of Science may offer an award known as the Bok Honours Year Scholarship in Astrophysics.
The objective of the award is to support students with an outstanding academic record to undertake their Honours year in Astronomy and Astrophysics with the Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics in the ANU College of Science.
The Scholarship is offered in honour of the late Professor Bart J. Bok, a former Director of the Mount Stromlo and Siding Spring Observatories from 1957 to 1966 and Professor of Astronomy at the Australian National University.
