Fully Funded: Summer Research Program at Australian National University

The Summer Research Program at ANU is an exceptional research opportunity for undergraduate students, providing insight into what studying Honours or a postgraduate research degree is all about.

For scholars, it’s about networks, friendships, and fun! The program extends beyond libraries and laboratories to workshops, forums and social activities within the summer scholar community. Many previous scholars tell us the Summer Research Program is a memorable experience that helps clarify their decision to continue on to Honours study or a higher degree by research. The combination of world-class facilities and specialist research environments, leading researchers and an excellent community program provides scholars with the perfect blend of education and fun!

The program runs for eight weeks, from Monday 20 November 2017 through to Friday 19 January 2018.




The scholarship program is offered as a funded study option, and gives you the opportunity to stretch your academic and personal boundaries by undertaking your own research project during an eight week summer program. 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.


  • Undergraduate students in their third or final year of their degree or Honours students, and currently enrolled at an Australian or New Zealand university.
  • Other students, including outstanding second year students who are intending to complete an Honours degree, or postgraduate students may also be considered at the discretion of individual ANU Colleges/Academics areas.
