The Summer Research program is supported by full scholarships and is aimed at undergraduate or honours students thinking about pursuing honours or graduate research in the future. Gain research experience alongside world-leading mathematicians.
The Summer Research Scholarship program at the Mathematical Sciences Institute gives undergraduate students the opportunity to gain insight into studying honours or a postgraduate research degree (PhD or MPhil). The program runs for nine weeks, from 22nd November through to 21st January (breaking during Christmas/New Year period). The Mathematical Sciences Institute offers Summer Research Scholarships and Summer Research Internships. ANU students are eligible to apply for a Summer Internship. External (i.e. non-ANU) students from Australia and New Zealand are eligible to apply for a Summer Research Scholarship.
The scholarship includes:
- a weekly allowance
- return travel to Canberra
ANU students (undergraduate or postgraduate) who meet the Summer Research Scholarship eligibility criteria may also be offered an internship under the Summer Research Internship scheme. This provides students with the same opportunities and weekly allowance that a Summer Research Scholar receives, but it does not include accommodation or travel expenses.
MSI Summer Research Scholars and Summer Interns will be invited to participate in a variety of shared social events, workshops and seminars during the summer period.
A limited number of Summer Research Scholarships are available each year so we recommend you also submit an application for an AMSI Vacation Research Scholarship (VRS).
Applications is now closed.
Undergraduate students in their third or final year of their degree or Honours students, and currently enrolled at an Australian or New Zealand university.
