Is this for you?
Applicants must be undergraduates of a Scottish university who are either of Scottish birth, descent, or with at least two years secondary education in Scotland; and who are in the third year of a four-year degree course or in the third or fourth year of a five-year degree course at the time of applying.
This is for you if you are on track to achieve a 2:1 or higher in your final degree classification and would like to devote some part of the long vacation to a research project. The project usually takes place at any time between May and August. It is full-time for a maximum of 12 weeks (typically 6-8 weeks).
When assessing applications, the Trust will look at the:
- Academic ability of the student;
- Quality of the proposed research;
- Feasibility of the project.
