Summer and Winter Research Scholarship Program


Summer and winter research scholarships are run over the summer and winter breaks. If you're interested in a research career or furthering your studies through an honours program, this is a great opportunity to get ahead over the holidays.

Research scholarships aim to provide you with:

  • experience in an area of research
  • an insight into future opportunities within research
  • encouragement to pursue a career in research or academia.

If successful, you will take part in research-related activities.
