“The Vacation Research Scholarship gives some of the nation’s top students in mathematics and statistics the chance to experience the thrill of advancing knowledge.”

Professor Tim Brown, past AMSI Director

Vacation Research Scholarships

AMSI’s Vacation Research Scholarship program has been run successfully since 2003/04. The program inspires undergraduates across Australia to commence a research career by funding second- and third-year undergraduate students to complete a six-week mathematical sciences research project over their summer break.

The Scholars experience life as researchers while they work closely with a supervisor to complete a project over six weeks. Near the end of their summer of research, they present their findings at the exclusive AMSIConnect student conference in February. Finally they write up their findings in a formal research report and prepare a blog post to develop their science communication skills and give them experience in scientific writing for broader audiences.
