Summer Research Scholarships

Summer Research Scholarships

Summer Research Scholarships aim to provide talented engineering and computing students with an opportunity to experience research-based activities at ANU.

These scholarships are exceptional research opportunities for undergraduate and masters coursework students, providing insight into what studying a graduate research degree is all about.

The scholarship or internship package gives you the opportunity to stretch your boundaries by undertaking research projects and activities during the summer under the supervision of researchers based in the School of Computing and the School of Engineering, utilising facilities and materials not readily available elsewhere.


About the program

We offer Summer Research Scholarships (SRS) and Summer Research Internships (SRI).

External (non-ANU) students from Australia and New Zealand are eligible to apply for a Summer Research Scholarship.

Current ANU students are eligible to apply for a Summer Research Internship.
