The Agriculture and Life Sciences Faculty at Lincoln University, including the Department of Ecology, is offering summer research scholarships over the summer vacation, valued at $5,000 each (tax free). The scholarship will last for 10 weeks. Scholarships will be awarded based on academic merit. So if you want to work on sandy beaches or follow tui around or search for weta in exotic places then have a look at the projects on offer.
We have run summer scholarships for the last few years and many students have had a lot of fun getting involved with research (and getting paid!). Note that it may say that the due date is the 7th September when it is actually the 14th September.
