    Summer (vacation) research scholarships

    UQ offers summer research scholarships to promising undergraduate students, usually after their second or third year of study.

    The program runs in our long vacation, December to February (Southern summer). We can take students in the June-August (Northern summer) period but only if you're self-funded.

    Postgraduate research

    We're always interested in welcoming new postgraduate members at the graduate diploma, masters and higher degree by research levels.

    If you want to join us as a research student, you'll need to select a topic, find a supervisor and then apply online.
