Applications for the 2019-20 University of Auckland Summer Research Scholarships is now open. The summer scholarship scheme is open to high-achieving domestic and international students.
To be eligible for the scheme, you would have completed at least two years of your undergraduate degree and are either
- enrolled in an undergraduate degree at a New Zealand university at the time you apply for the scholarship
- or enrolled in a postgraduate bachelor (honours) or postgraduate diploma programme at a New Zealand university at the time you apply for the scholarship

The UoA Summer Research Scholarship scheme provides a perfect opportunity for students to gain research experience, enhance career opportunities and to help you to think about pursuing postgraduate study.
The Leung Group offers projects in the area of protein expression and purification. Previous summer research scholars of the group have done extremely well, and their work have contributed to several publications (for example see here).
You can find more information about the available projects from the Leung Group (as well as those from the School of Chemical Sciences) via the link here.
