Macquarie University is inviting applicants to apply for the  This scholarship presents a unique opportunity for passionate individuals to contribute to cutting-edge advancements in construction and manufacturing through the exploration of ant-inspired processes for teams of building robots.

The primary aim of this scholarship is to support research endeavors focused on understanding and implementing decentralized processes, akin to those observed in ant colonies, to program robots for effective teamwork in construction and manufacturing tasks. By delving into the intricate mechanisms behind how ant colonies build complex structures using decentralized, self-organized processes, scholars will pave the way for the development of innovative robotic systems capable of autonomously undertaking intricate tasks without human intervention.

Macquarie University was founded in 1964 by the New South Wales Government and has five faculties in Australia. It has two residential colleges on its campus both founded in 1972 offer academic support and a wide range of social and sporting activities in a communal environment.
