The Special Scholarship Program (SSP) was established in 2003 in order to support the advanced research of the university by enlisting the help of highly capable students especially students from foreign countries. Every year in April and October, the university enrolls selected doctoral students for specific research projects. The students pursue the doctoral course in English (excl. Japanese students) while at the same time assisting their host professor as a research assistant (RA). Through this program KUT wishes to expand and deepen international ties with academic and educational institutions all over the world.

There are a few scholarship schemes at the University of Southern Denmark. The largest one is the Danish Government Scholarship – supported by the Ministry of Higher Education and Science.
Through this scheme the Faculty of Engineering offers scholarships to highly qualified students enrolled in the two-year master degree study programmes in engineering:
Globally, women make up less than 30 percent of the workforce in physics, computer sciences and engineering, according to U.S. News & World Report. In an effort to carry out its mission that women have access to all resources and are represented in decision-making positions on an equal basis with men, Zonta International offers the Amelia Earhart Fellowship.
The Amelia Earhart Fellowship was established in 1938 in honor of famed pilot and Zontian, Amelia Earhart. The US$10,000 Fellowship is awarded annually to up to 30 women pursuing Ph.D./doctoral degrees in aerospace-applied sciences or aerospace-applied engineering. It may be used at any university or college offering accredited post-graduate courses and degrees in these fields.
Since the program’s inception in 1938, Zonta has awarded 1,573 Amelia Earhart Fellowships, totaling more than US$10 million, to 1,144 women representing 73 countries.
Our Fellows have gone on to become astronauts, aerospace engineers, astronomers, professors, geologists, business owners, heads of companies, even Secretary of the US Air Force.

PhD Studentship in When Machine Learning Meets Big Data in Wireless Communications
Recent several decades have witnessed the exponential growth in commercial data services, which lead to step in the so-called big data era. The pervasive increasing data traffic present both the imminent challenges and new opportunities to all aspects of wireless system design, such as efficient wireless caching, drone base station deployment and adaptive nonorthogonal multiple access design. Machine learning, as one of the most promising artificial intelligence tools, has been invoked in many areas both in the academia and industry. Nevertheless, the application of machine learning in wireless communication scenarios is still in its infancy, which motivates to develop this phD project. The aim of this phD project is to use social media data to predict the requirements of mobile users for improving the performance of wireless networks.
All applicants should hold a masters level degree at first /distinction level in Computer Science or Electronic Engineering (or a related discipline). Applicants should have a good knowledge of English and ability to express themselves clearly in both speech and writing. The successful candidate must be strongly motivated for doctoral studies, must have demonstrated the ability to work independently and to perform critical analysis.
Candidates are asked to possess fundamental knowledge and skills in two or more of the following areas:
Excellent background in communication theory and signal processing algorithms. Good knowledge of emerging 5G and IoT techniques, such as NOMA, wireless caching and mobile computing, UAV, V2X, etc.
Prior experience/education in both theory and practice of machine learning.
Hands on experience using one of the following deep learning libraries: Tensorflow, PyTorch, Theano or similar.
Good coding skills. (Python and C++ are considered a plus).
Each year the ANU College of Engineering and Computer Science may award up to six (6) scholarships, known as the International Postgraduate Excellence Scholarship.
The Scholarship is available for international students who have applied for admission to a Graduate Diploma or a Masters Postgraduate Coursework program offered by the College. The Scholarship is highly competitive and based on academic merit.

Is a citizen of one the countries specified by the College.
Has received an offer of admission into a Graduate Diploma or Masters by coursework program offered by the College to commence in teaching period for which they are applying for this scholarship.
Will commence a Graduate Diploma or Masters by coursework program within the College for the first time.
A Selection Committee will be appointed and will make a recommendation for this Scholarship based on academic merit, and the program of study which the applicants have applied for. Consideration may also be given to any other factors which the Selection Committee considers to be appropriate and in line with the College’s strategic direction and priorities.
