The summer research scholarship program at ANU is an exceptional research opportunity for undergraduate students, providing insight into what studying Honours or a postgraduate research degree is all about.

The program runs for eight weeks commencing Monday 20 November - Friday 19 January (excluding the Christmas/New Year break Sat 23 December - Mon 1 January).

The scholarship program is offered as a funded study option, and gives you the opportunity to stretch your academic and personal boundaries by undertaking your own research project during an eight week summer program. The scholarship includes:

  • full board on campus
  • a weekly allowance
  • return travel to Canberra
  • an opportunity to undertake a short research project on an approved topic.

We also participate in the Summer Research Internship scheme. ANU students (undergraduate or postgraduate) who meet the Summer Research Scholarship eligibility criteria may be offered an internship. The internship provides students with the same opportunities and weekly allowance that a Summer Research Scholar receives, but do not include accommodation or travel expenses.

We have developed some summer research projects to give students an idea of what is possible, but the list is not exhaustive. Use the contacts link above to enquire further about research project options with us.
Since there is only a limited number of MSI funded Summer Research Scholarships available each year, we recommend that people interested in being a summer scholar at MSI submit an application for an AMSI Vacation Research Scholarship (VRS) as well.  For further information please visit the AMSI VRS page.
