The Dean's Summer Research Scholarships

The Faculty of Science, Engineering & technology is very keen to introduce its high achieving students to the research activities undertaken in the Schools. The Faculty will be awarding scholarships at $2000 each to allow students to work in a research group for a period of 6 weeks during the 2014/2015 summer period.

Scholarship participants will work alongside their supervisor and graduate research students and gain experience in identifying and solving research problems. These experiences will provide the student excellent preparation for future Honours and Postgraduate programs.

To be eligible to apply, students must have a Grade Point Average of 5.0 or more. Applicants need to be in their final year and are expecting to graduate at the end of this year and are planning to enrol into Honours in 2015 OR are about to enter their final year of their undergraduate degree. Students who have previously been awarded the scholarship are not eligible to apply.

To apply for this scholarship, the student must first meet their UTAS Head of School to identify which projects are available. Next step is to discuss the project with the supervisor and have it approved before submitting the application. Successful applicants will be offered a place in the new Bachelor of Philosophy and will be enrolled in a HECS free unit “Summer Research Experience” to acknowledge the commitment students make in this excellent program. 

The deadline to submit the application is Monday 27 October 2014. Further details can be found on the form. Applicants will be notified by end of November 2014.
