The Summer Research Scholarship Programme

The University of Waikato Summer Research Scholarships are intended to support and enhance research to our communities, stakeholders and partners and build collaborative relationships.

The programme provides promising undergraduate, final-year honours and first-year master’s degree students enrolled in taught papers (particularly those considering further study at the University of Waikato), with the opportunity to experience the challenges and rewards of research.

$6,000 Scholarships are offered in various disciplines and support a ten-week period of full-time research during the C Trimester (November – February). Students will also be enrolled in a credit-bearing paper and will likely have further expectations in relation to that paper.

Confirmation of the paper code will be confirmed prior to the student commencing on the programme and will be at the discretion of the Division/Faculty/School. Enrolment in this paper will not incur any cost to the student.

Applications for the Summer Research Scholarship 2021/22 are now closed.
