Why apply for a Vacation Scholarship Award?

Our Vacation Scholarship Awards are intended to provide promising undergraduates with hands-on experience of research during the summer vacation and to encourage them to consider a career in research.


What does the student get?

Scholarships are available for a minimum of six and a maximum of eight weeks' work and carry a stipend of £200 per week. The scheme aims to provide practical work experience in an environment that will match the student's area of study or interests. Long term, it will help career prospects for young people.


Who can apply?

UK Research Institutes and Universities that have active research groups working in Animal Biosciences can apply to host a vacation scholarship. The project must be in the field of Animal Biosciences.
