Summer and Winter Research Programs

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies Unit's summer and winter research program provides Indigenous students with the opportunity to gain practical research experience, while working alongside some of UQ's leading Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander academics and researchers.

What to expect

By participating in a research program, you'll take part in a project that will help you gain valuable academic and professional experience, develop analytical and critical thinking, and have the chance to create networks with industry and academic contacts.

As a research scholar you'll receive a scholarship equivalent of $2000 for the duration of your project.

Who can apply

You're eligible if you're:

  • an undergraduate, honours, or master's by coursework student
  • have completed at least 2 years of study
  • are currently enrolled at the time of application.

Applications are now closed for the latest Winter Research Program. Watch out for updates on the Summer Research Program later in the year.
