Vacation scholarships

lab equipmentThe Ian Wark Research Institute welcomes applications for vacation scholarships from students who have consistently achieved a high level of academic performance in their degree program. As a minimum requirement, students must have completed the first year of their degree program.

Scholarships apply for up to two months (usually between the December - February period) and enable successful applicants to work with one or more strong research sectors within The Wark. The tax-free stipend is $350 per week, paid fortnightly. 

Applicants are encouraged to visit The Wark, to view our facilities, and to meet some of our research staff and postgraduate students. Project outlines are discussed and developed in conjunction with successful applicants prior to commencement.

We invite you to complete and submit an application form. The closing date for applications is 30 September of each year. We will acknowledge your application by email.

For further information, please contact Ms Louise Jennings.
