Applications for 2019 Winter Research Scholarships will open on 15 March 2019 and close 5 April 2019.

The UQ Winter Research Scholarship Program offers scholarships to students wishing to undertake a research internship over the winter vacation period.

Research internships provide students with the opportunity to work with a researcher in a formal research environment so that they may experience the research process and discover what research is being undertaken in their field of interest at UQ.

Some students may qualify to receive a scholarship for the duration of their internship.
