Perkins Student Vacation Research Scholarships

Perkins 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 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, along with the other successful applicants.

For an idea of opportunities presented for students, view the 2021 Perkins Student Projects brochure hereTo apply for an opportunity, download the Perkins 2021-2022 Vacation Scholarship Application. Prior to applying, be sure to review the Perkins’ Research / Labs and disease focus areas to know who you’d like to speak with, and reach out to get in contact with relevant Perkins researchers. Scholarship applications will be accepted at any time following the Student Information Sundowner event (in 2021 – after 24 August)
