Summer research programs

Summer research programs are offered during your semester break and give you the opportunity to gain research experience while working with leading researchers at the University.

The programs vary from four to eight weeks and are offered as scholarships, meaning you will receive payment for the duration of the program.

Information on the programs available, eligibility and application process can be found on the faculty, school or centre websites listed below

The Charles Perkins Centre brings together researchers from a range of disciplines to find solutions to some of society’s greatest health challenges: obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and related conditions.

The summer research scholarships give you the opportunity to undertake paid research with the centre’s leading academics. The program runs for eight weeks and is open to current undergraduate and postgraduate students from any area of study.

Sydney Medical School

Sydney Medical School Summer Research Scholarships give you the opportunity to work alongside established medical researchers full time for 8 weeks. The scholarship will help you gain experience in medical-related research and learn about the research process in high quality facilities.

You need to be enrolled full time in either an undergraduate degree or professional doctorate to apply for the scholarship.

If you are successful you may commence your scholarship from 1 November, and it will conclude by 22 February, 2019. The scholarship comes with a stipend of $300 per week.

Fill out the application form by 12 September if you’d like to be a part of the program.

Sydney Nursing School

Summer scholarship programs at Sydney Nursing School allow you to work on a research project under the supervision of a leading researcher. You will learn about nursing and midwifery research, develop research skills and be encouraged to explore further research studies.

The scholarships run for four weeks over summer (140 hours between January and February) and are open to current students enrolled in the Bachelor of Nursing, Bachelor or Nursing (Advanced Studies) and postgraduate coursework programs.

The Faculty of Science Summer Research program offers research projects for students in the second or third year of their undergraduate degree, with associated scholarship opportunities.

The program is a great way for you to gain research experience and an insight into research process while working alongside our leading scientific researchers.

You will undertake a formal supervised research project carried out over six weeks 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.
