Graham Centre Summer Scholarships are designed to encourage undergraduate students to engage in research activity aligned with the Centre's Research Pathways.
A tax-free payment of $4,000 (or a pro-rata amount, where applicable) is payable to the student either as a lump sum payment or in no more than two instalments. The payment schedule will be determined by the Centre Director or nominee.
Successful applicants will be required to spend up to 200 hours during the Summer semester break working on a single project supervised by a Graham Centre Member. The required days/hours and the length of the scholarship will be negotiated with the individual project supervisors and approved by the Centre Director or nominee. The scholarship cannot commence before the end of Session 2, 2016, and must not extend beyond the commencement date of Session 1, 2017. Students are not permitted to work during the University's official Christmas close-down period nor on weekends or public holidays.
Students will be required to complete timesheets for the hours worked. Supervisors must provide a report to the Centre Director at the end of the scholarship.
Students enrolled in a full-time, undergraduate degree course at CSU who have achieved a high academic standard are eligible to apply. The anticipated standard is a Grade Point Average of at least 5.00 points or a standard sufficient to allow entry into the University's Honours Program. Students who have already commenced an Honours degree are ineligible to apply.
Applicants may wish to discuss their research interests and/or potential projects with one or more Graham Centre Members prior to submitting their application.
