Summer Scholarship Research Program 2021

Western Sydney University has an excellent opportunity available for undergraduate students wanting to learn more about university research, in particular higher degree research. The Summer Scholarship Research Program is designed to provide students with a placement in a formal research environment supervised by leading Western Sydney University academics.

In 2021, the Summer Scholarship program will be offering a new and exciting two stream process which provides the opportunity for undergraduate WSU students to be part of either a Partnership Summer Scholarship or a University Summer Scholarship.

Both a Partnership and University Summer Scholarships provide Western Sydney University undergraduates with an exceptional opportunity to experience what academic research is all about, focusing on new knowledge, innovation and experiences.

A Partnership Summer Scholarship enhances student knowledge, technical capabilities and professional standards to work on and solve industry defined problems. The Partner Summer Scholarship scheme provides an opportunity to develop industry relationships that offer potential growth to future partnerships for the researchers and industry connections for the student. Each partnership project will be supported with a WSU supervisor and a representative from the partnership.

Students will gain experience in carrying out a research project and presenting their findings in a report and presentation. Western Sydney University is offering a range of project choices in various Schools and Institutes across a number of research fields.

Scholarships are available to currently enrolled Western Sydney University undergraduate students and will be awarded on a competitive basis. Students can nominate up to 3 projects of interest. Whilst every effort will be made to accommodate project preferences, the Selection Committee will have final determination in the allocation of projects. Please note it is recommended that you choose more than one preference.  If you choose only one preference, there is a greater possibility of not being allocated a project.

Applications close Sunday 17 October 2021.
