The program

A Summer Research Scholarship at The Australian National University is an exceptional research opportunity for undergraduate students, providing insight into what studying for an Honours or a graduate research degree is all about.

The scholarship gives you the opportunity to stretch your academic and personal boundaries by undertaking your own research project during an eight week summer program.

For scholars, it's also about networks, friendships, and fun!  Our program extends beyond libraries and laboratories to workshops, forums and social activities within the summer scholar community.
