Two graduates from the University of Sydney have received scholarships to complete research into solar cells and cognitive science at the University of Cambridge.

The Cambridge Australia Scholarships support outstanding Australian graduates to undertake master's and PhD studies at the University of Cambridge.

Nathaniel Davis graduated from the University of Sydney with a Bachelor of Science (Advanced) (Honours) in 2012. He will undertake a PhD in Physics focusing on solar cell research, and hopes to work at a world-leading institution in solar cell research.

Julie Ji completed a Bachelor of Media and Communications at the University of Sydney in 2008. She will pursue a PhD in Biological Science to explore positive emotions in depression. Her goal is to become a leading cognitive scientist.

"I congratulate Nathaniel and Julie and wish them every success in their studies at Cambridge which will provide them with an outstanding opportunity to further develop as leaders in their chosen fields," says Dr Michael Spence, Vice-Chancellor and Principal of the University of Sydney.

Each year the Cambridge Australia Scholarships award up to 10 PhD scholarships and a number of master's half-scholarships.
