Summer Scholars Scheme

Over the summer the Faculty provides several scholarships to students, offering a unique opportunity for students to gain experience in research—with the added bonus of paid work over the summer trimester. Each scholarship gives a student the experience of working with established researchers on a specified project and get an insight into what studying for a research degree entails. Find out more about the Summer Scholars Scheme.

2023/2024 Summer Research Scholarship applications are now closed. Applications for 2024/2025 scholarships will open in September 2024.

Opportunities for Māori students are also available through the Ahunuku Māori Summer Research Scholarship.
