Summer Research Scholarships

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

The scholarships will allow you to participate in a research project for a period of up to six weeks to 'get a taste' of what research is really about.

  • Benefits
    • You participate in an actual research project and work with some of the world's top scientists.
    • You get paid while you do it.
    • You get valuable work experience that you can include on your CV.
    • You build relationships with potential honours and PhD supervisors.
    • You get to experience if you really do want to become a researcher in a particular field.
  • Are you eligible?
    • You need to be a current university undergraduate student. Some scholarships (e.g. offered by CRCs) may be open to students from universities other than Adelaide.
    • Usually you will need to have completed a minimum of two years of study. Some scholarships will allow outstanding first year students or students that have just completed their bachelor degree.
    • You should have at least a credit average for your grades. Always include a copy of your academic record with your application.
    • Some scholarships will require that you are an Australian citizen or a permanent resident - always check before applying.
    • You should submit a paragraph outlining your reasons for wanting to complete the summer research scholarship and how this will help you in your future career.
    • There are two types of summer research scholarships available.

    **We recommend students apply for both scholarships**
