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 20th November through to 19th 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 (SRI). External (i.e. non-ANU) students from Australia and New Zealand are eligible to apply for a Summer Research Scholarship (SRS).

Successful SRS candidates are awarded a weekly stipend of $150 plus on campus accommodation and meals. 

Successful SRI candidates are awarded a weekly stipend of $400 to cover for the off campus rental and other associate costs.

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).

Eligibility

Undergraduate students in their third or final year of their degree or Honours students, and currently enrolled at an Australian or New Zealand university.

Equity-based adjustments may be made for Indigenous students or for other reasons aligned to the Education Access Scheme (Equity) Adjustment Schedule. College of Science will offer fully funded positions to successful applicants.

The curve shortening flow is a simple and beautiful example of a geometric heat flow, the family of equations which includes the Ricci flow used by Perelman to prove the Poincare conjecture as well as many other interesting examples.
