The UQ Summer/Winter Research Scholarship Programs offer scholarships to UQ currently-enrolled students who are engaged in research internships over the Summer (from mid-November to mid-February) or Winter (late June to late July) vacation period.

Research internships provide the opportunity to work with a researcher in a formal research environment so that you can experience the research process and discover what research is being undertaken in your field of interest at UQ. Some students may also qualify to receive a scholarship for the duration of their internship.

Allocation of the scholarships is decided by the faculty, school, research centre or institute where the research is undertaken.
