Summer scholars

Spend your summer vacation working with us! Our summer scholars experience working in a team environment and solve real world problems.

We take up to ten summer scholars each year, from Victoria University and other New Zealand tertiary institutes and universities. We are especially interested in students who would like to compete a final year engineering project with us. Our current available project are listed below.

The scholarships are open to undergraduate students (usually before their final year) and run from November to February. Generally students are based on site with us at the Gracefield Innovation Quarter.

Information about the summer scholarships, including what's involved and what they are worth, is available from Victoria’s website.
