Application deadline

31 August 2017

Gain research experience alongside world-leading mathematicians.

The Summer Research Scholarship program at the Mathematical Sciences Institute gives undergraduate students the opportunity to gain insight into studying Honours or a postgraduate research degree (PhD or MPhil). The program runs for seven weeks, from Monday 27 November 2017 – Friday 19 January 2018.

The scholarship includes:

  • full board on campus
  • a weekly allowance
  • return travel to Canberra
  • an opportunity to undertake a short research project on an approved topic.

Check out our summer research projects to get an idea of the kind of topics you could choose.

There are only a limited number of Summer Research Scholarships available each year so we recommend that you also submit an application for an AMSI Vacation Research Scholarship (VRS).


  • Open 1 August 2017
  • Closes 31 August 2017


  • Undergraduate students in their third or final year of their degree or Honours students, and currently enrolled at an Australian or New Zealand university.

ANU students (undergraduate or postgraduate) who meet the Summer Research Scholarship eligibility criteria may also be offered an internship under the Summer Research Internship scheme. This provides students with the same opportunities and weekly allowance that a Summer Research Scholar receives, but it does not include accommodation or travel expenses.
