Undergraduate research and leadership scholarships

These scholarships provide funding from alumni to enable undergraduate students to develop their research and leadership capability by taking part in established academic research projects.

The Undergraduate Research and Leadership Scholarships allow students to prepare for future research and leadership roles in further study or employment. 

Scholars receive funding to enable them to undertake two 6-week periods of project work during the summer vacations at the end of their first and second year, and this is supplemented by tailored research, leadership and teamwork training on and off campus. Scholars also benefit from the personal development opportunities provided by a range of (paid) ambassadorial activities in support of the Scholarship scheme and of student education and research activities in their Faculty /School.
