Summer Research Scholarships

The Faculty of Education and Social Work offers research scholarships during the summer period of each year. We welcome applications from all eligible students. We particularly encourage applications from Māori and Pacific students, students from other universities in New Zealand and international students.

The purpose of Summer Research Scholarships is to give university students, normally in their final or penultimate undergraduate year, experience in research, to encourage them to pursue postgraduate study.

Students are expected to conduct a research project of approximately 10 weeks duration (400 hours) under the supervision of an academic staff member.
