Summer research scholarships

Summer research scholarships offer a unique opportunity for external organisations, academics and students to work together in research.

The scholarships are open to students who have completed at least two years of their undergraduate degree and are currently enrolled full-time at any Australian or New Zealand University in an undergraduate, Honours or the first year of a Master’s degree.

Each summer research scholarship includes a minimum tax-free stipend of $6,000. Students are expected to work on a research project for up to 10 weeks (400 hours) over the summer trimester, under the supervision of well-established researchers or a research team at the University.
