The University of Waikato Summer Research Scholarships are offered to promising students, especially those who are considering further study, with the opportunity to experience the challenges and rewards of research work. 

The research scholarships are offered in various different disciplines during the summer break and take place over a 10-week period.

Successful applicants will be chosen based on the following:

  • academic merit
  • expertise in the specific areas in which the scholarship is being offered
  • intention to undertake a research qualification at the University of Waikato

The scholarship is valued at $5,000 and will normally be paid in four installments: the first (25%) on commencement, the second (25%) four weeks through the term of the Scholarship, the third (35%) 8 weeks through the term of the scholarship and the final (15%) following submission of the research report within four weeks of the completion of the Scholarship term. The payment of the third installment will also be conditional upon receipt of a brief report from the supervisor confirming satisfactory progress.
