Summer research scholarships
At the Charles Perkins Centre, we offer a select group of high-achieving students enrolled in any undergraduate or postgraduate coursework program the opportunity to learn valuable research skills and learn from senior researchers.
Engaging young researchers
The Charles Perkins Centre is committed to delivering real world solutions to some of humanity’s greatest health challenges: obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and related conditions. Finding these solutions requires unique collaborations between researchers from a variety of backgrounds and the fresh insights they bring.
The summer scholarships program is open to all University of Sydney undergraduate and postgraduate coursework students, from any area of study and with any level of research experience.
Our summer scholarships provide students an exclusive opportunity to join the Centre’s mission and undertake paid research with leading academics in world-class facilities. Successful candidates will develop research skills, gain experience and contribute to finding real world solutions through eight weeks of paid research.
Your research project will contribute to the understanding, management or prevention of the individual and societal impacts of obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and related conditions.
“No matter background or discipline, we’ll find a way of weaving you into the work of the centre.”
– Professor Stephen Simpson, Academic Director
Applications for 2016/2017 will open in September 2016.
