The Science Summer Research Program offers second and third year undergraduate students the opportunity to undertake supervised research projects during the Australian summer break.
The program is a great way to gain research experience and an insight into research process while working alongside our leading scientific researchers.
Participants will undertake a formal supervised research project carried out full time over several weeks during the summer break (starting after the Semester 2 examination period and finishing before Semester 1 of the following year).
You will select from the list of available projects below (successful applicants can work with the project supervisor to tailor the project to your interests and education level).
You will also complete a short assessment at the end of the project.
Participants in the program are awarded a summer research scholarship, to help support you while you complete the project.
Applicants will automatically be considered for a scholarship, and must meet the scholarship terms and conditions.
The program requirements and eligibility criteria can vary from year to year, and will be specified in the program materials and scholarship terms and conditions for that year.
