Denison Research Scholarships

Summer Program

The Faculty of Science offers over 120 Denison Research Scholarship opportunities for students in the second or third year of their undergraduate degree.

Denison Research Scholarships are a great way to gain research experience and an insight into research process while working alongside our leading scientific researchers. These scholarships are a formal supervised research projects carried out over six-week during the Summer holiday period (November-early March), equipping participants with valuable academic and professional skills. Each project is an independent and tailored project suited to your current education level.

The program is open to both current University of Sydney students (domestic and international) as well as students from other Australian Universities, including New Zealand. Unfortunately, international students from competitor universities in Australia and New Zealand are not eligible to apply due to visa limitations.

Each scholarship is valued at the 2017 Research Training Program (RTP) stipend amount ($513) per week for the duration of the project. Students living outside of metropolitan Sydney may also be eligible for an additional scholarship - valued at $250 per week for the duration of the Denison Research Scholarship project - to assist with travel and relocation costs.

Denison Research Scholarships are available in the following research disciplines. Follow the links below to find information about summer scholarships in each of these disciplines:
