The Adelaide Summer Research Scholarship program is open to continuing undergraduate students, particularly those in the later years of their bachelor degree, who are interested in pursuing research studies.

Each scholarship provides a living allowance of $200 per week for six weeks.

Scholarships are available in all of our schools, institutes and research centres, and across all of the fields of research we conduct in the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences.
