Taste of Research Summer Scholarships
The Taste of Research program was set-up by UNSW Engineering to allow undergraduate students to spend a summer working with a research group to understand what real research is about at university and in industry.
The program gives second and third year students the chance to do a 12 week project with an existing research team within the Faculty and receive a tax exempt allowance of about $500 per week.
Projects on offer
There are about 200 projects on offer each year, including areas such as:
- commercial solar cell technologies
- reducing coal-fired power plant emissions
- signal processing for GPS augmentation
- omni-directional mobile robots
- cochlear implant signal processing
Visit the 2016/2017 Projects page.
The program is open to local and international students who meet the following criteria:
- Be a high achieving second or third year undergraduate student enrolled in a full-time program
- Be enrolled in a relevant program at UNSW, another Australian University or a New Zealand University
- Submit an online application form
- Receive $500 per week allowance (tax exempt)
- UNSW Engineering students may use their Taste of Research Summer Scholarship to contribute towards their industrial training (up to 6 weeks)
Each applicant will be assessed on the basis of academic merit, interest in undertaking research activities, and intended career plans.
The scholarships are available in a variety of research areas for a period of 12 weeks from November to February.
