Summer Research Scholarships

Summer Research Scholarships offer a unique opportunity for external organisations, academics & students to work together in research over the summer trimester.

Each scholarship gives a student the experience of working with established researchers in an area of interest to them, under the supervision of an academic staff member or a research team.

Students gain valuable skills and experience from taking part in this scheme, and this Policy Quarterly article provides an example of a previous project. Co-written by Victoria Business School alumna Amelia Cina (now a Junior Strategist for Inland Revenue NZ) and her research supervisor Professor Stephen Cummings, it is based on a research project that was part-funded by the Inland Revenue Department.
