What are the AMSI Vacation Research Scholarships?
AMSI funds and supports undergraduate students from around Australia to spend their summer holidays (December-February) working on supervised research projects. AMSI VRS is open to intending honours and masters students, and is a fantastic opportunity to broaden academic interests and experience.
AMSI Vacation Research Scholars undertake research, build a project, submit a blog, and present to their peers and supervisors at AMSIConnect, the two-day AMSI VRS conference held in Melbourne every February.

Working with an academic who was enthusiastic about teaching some interesting higher level mathematics.
I enjoyed meeting future collaborators and looking at all of the difference areas of mathematical research
Meeting new people in a state I had never been and meeting some notable people whilst conducting my research and I would never have got this opportunity if it wasn't for AMSI and the research scholarship
It was a really fun atmosphere, while still allowing me to a learn a bunch of new things in areas I didn't expect to be interested in
It was a great introduction for what to expect when pursuing post-grad studies in mathematics
