The Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research invites applications for Summer Vacation Scholarships.
The purpose of the scholarship is to enable a student to carry out research within the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research. These scholarships provide students with an exciting opportunity to learn valuable research skills and sample real-life medical research in the laboratories of leading scientists. The project opportunities involve using cutting edge technologies and approaches that are not typically available in an undergraduate setting. These scholarships are particularly valuable for students considering postgraduate research degrees.
It is expected that the projects will last for at least 6 weeks. It is a condition of receiving a Perkins Vacation Scholarship that the successful applicant provide a short written report of the result of the scholarship and give a 10 minute seminar on the project in February 2023, along with the other successful applicants. There are eight Perkins Vacation Scholarships available valued at $2,500 each.
Applications must be submitted by 5pm on the 31st October. Successful applicants will be notified by mid November 2022.
