The Graham Centre Student Internships aim to increase undergraduate students' interest in research. Guided by a mentor, Student Interns will work on current research projects aligned with the Centre's Research pathways.
Student Internships are valued at a maximum of $4,000 tax-free (or a pro rata amount based on hours worked, where applicable), payable in two instalments.
Each student should identify a Mentor who is a Full or Associate Member of the Graham Centre. Applicants are encouraged to make contact directly with Centre Members who are engaged in areas of research that are of interest.
Before you apply:
If you need assistance contacting Centre Members, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Guided by a mentor, successful applicants will spend up to 200 hours (the equivalent of seven hours per week) during Sessions 1 and 2 working within one or more of the Centre's Research pathways. Students must be available for on-site work.
Successful applicants must attend an Information Session at the Graham Centre before starting. This is usually scheduled during the last week of March.
The internship cannot commence before the start of Session 1 (March), and must not extend beyond 30 November the same year.
Students are not permitted to work on weekends or public holidays and must not work more than 200 hours in total.
Successful applicants must submit a Work Plan by early April, developed in conjunction with their Mentor. Interns will be required to submit timesheets each month for the hours worked, as well as a report at the end of their internship.
The primary mentor must also provide a report at the end of the internship.
By applying, the student agrees to comply with all requirements of the Internship.
To complete the application, you will need information on your project and your Mentor/s.
