Summer Research Scholarships are a great way to gain valuable research experience, work with leading researchers at the University of Auckland, enhance your career opportunities and help you think about pursuing postgraduate study.
If you’re a third year or above, interested and skilled in research, you could spend the summer supporting a research project and earn a valuable scholarship.
Summer Research scholarships offer a unique opportunity for external organisations, academics and students to work together in research. Working with globally recognised researchers in a local setting, students will gain valuable real-world experience as well as an insight into what research is all about.
Depending on the project, students can gain experience and skills in data collection, data analysis, literature reviews, interviewing techniques, learning to use specialised software, and acquiring specialist skills in the laboratory.
