Adelaide Summer Research Scholarships description

Students who have completed at least two years (48 units) of their program, at a standard acceptable level for admission to an Honours program, will be considered in the first instance. Students must contact their Faculty/School to ensure that an appropriate research project is available.

In exceptional circumstances students who have completed less than two years of study may be considered.

Australian citizens, permanent residents of Australia, New Zealand Citizens, holders of a Permanent Humanitarian Visa and international students who hold current appropriate visas permitting study in Australia beyond February 2022 are eligible to apply for these scholarships

Students who are in receipt of, or expect to receive any other summer or vacation scholarships over the 2021-22 summer vacation (e.g. National Heart Foundation Summer Scholarship, Cancer Council Vacation scholarships) are not eligible for the Adelaide Summer Research Scholarship unless the other scholarship is for a separate research project.
