Summer and Winter Research Scholarship Program
The summer and winter 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. Projects run over the winter or summer break. If you're interested in furthering your studies through an honours program or a career in research, this program is a great option to get ahead over your holidays.
