43 Vacation Research Scholarship students from 16 AMSI Member Universities are currently undertaking research with a supervisor for their chosen project.  Each student will prepare a research report and blog for submission, as well as present their research and findings at AMSIConnect in February.

The VRS reports, blogs and profiles are written and proofed by individual authors and supervisors. Any of the opinions or work presented in these reports and blogs is that of the author and do not necessarily reflect those of the Australian Mathematical Sciences or any of its staff.


VRS Student Profiles and Project Abstracts are available via the Student Profile. Please click on the arrow under DETAILS to view.
