Undergraduate Scholarships

UNSW Science Vacation Research Scholarships (SVRS) 2020 - 2021

Are you a science student who would like the opportunity to experience the real world of scientific research first-hand?

Students in the penultimate (second last) year of their undergraduate program in Science or a related discipline are invited to apply for an SVRS to join a BABS research team and participate in research over the coming summer.

Each SVRS scholarship is valued at $3,800 and students will participate in a 6-week research project.

BABS has key strengths in environmental microbiology, genetics and cellular biology, molecular medicine, and associated technology development in the areas of functional genomics and many facets of biotechnology. The School has a unique strength in combining fundamental biological and biomolecular sciences with strong applied biotechnology and medical focus.
