Our Summer Research Scholarships provide an exclusive opportunity for students to undertake paid research with leading academics in our world-class facilities. Successful candidates will develop research skills, gain experience and contribute to finding real-world solutions through eight weeks of paid research.
Successful applicants will have the opportunity to design their own research projects that will contribute to the understanding, management or prevention of the individual and societal impacts of obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and related conditions.
The program has been running for the past six years, fostering opportunities for more than 50 undergraduate and postgraduate coursework students from all disciplines across the University.
