Passionate about research? Apply now for Vacation Scholarships
5 December 2012
The Wellcome Trust is inviting applications from undergraduates studying a range of scientific disciplines to work in a biomedical science laboratory during their summer vacation. The Scholarships provide a stipend for up to eight weeks. Research expenses are not provided.
Students should be undergraduates in the middle (i.e. not the first or last) years of their first degree. Preference will be given to undergraduates without previous research experience. Applicants should be registered for a basic science, medical, dentistry or veterinary degree at a university within the UK or the Republic of Ireland.
Students are encouraged to arrange their scholarship away from their usual place of study to gain new experiences and develop their independence, but projects must be undertaken at a university in the UK or Republic of Ireland.
Applications must be submitted on behalf of the student by the project supervisor, by 15 February 2013. Find out more.
