Perkins invites applications for Summer Vacation Scholarships. The purpose of the scholarship is to enable a student to carry out research within the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research. These scholarships are particularly valuable for students considering postgraduate research degrees. It is expected that the projects will last for at least 6 weeks. It is a condition of receiving a Perkins Vacation Scholarship that the successful applicant provide a short written report of the result of the scholarship and give a 10 minute seminar on the project, along with the other successful applicants. There are eight Perkins Vacation Scholarships available valued at $2,500 each.
