Summer Research Scholarships

Each year, the School of Animal & Veterinary Sciences, along with their many research partners located on the Roseworthy campus, offer Summer Scholarships to outstanding undergraduate students.

The Summer Scholarships allow students to participate in a research project for a period of up to 6 weeks to "get a taste" of what research is really about.
