Summer Scholarship Program

Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre

Summer student scholarships are provided to outstanding undergraduate science/biomedical science students during the Australian summer university break. Summer students work on a specific project along with other students, post-doctoral scientists and senior researchers in the laboratory. They gain experience in laboratory research, use state of the art equipment and learn many new and exciting laboratory techniques. Students also have many opportunities to attend scientific meetings and presentations and are very much part of the research team.
Eligibility: The scholarships are open to undergraduate students genuinely interested in biomedical research who are enrolled full-time students in the second or final years of their undergraduate degree in science, applied science, biomedical science or medicine. Final year students interested in an honours year are strongly encouraged to apply. International students already studying in Australia may apply according to visa conditions. Masters or postgraduate university students are not eligible to apply for these scholarships.
