Summer Research Scholarships

The Otago Medical Research Foundation funds around 20 summer research projects annually related to human health, including biomedical sciences and public health.

These scholarships are competitive, with many more students applying than it is possible to fund. The applications are assessed by the Foundation’s Scientific Committee so only the very best are chosen.

These student summer research projects are supervised by senior researchers and run for 10 weeks. These often lead to research and teaching careers for the students, and the projects contribute knowledge to the field.

Applications for 2023/24 Summer Research Scholarships are now closed - learn more here.
