ACPIR Summer Research Scholarship program for undergraduate students now open

27 Oct 2021

Be a part of a research team over Summer, increase your exposure to research as a career pathway, and learn about the research process.

The Australian Centre for Pacific Islands Research (ACPIR) is offering three scholarships, each valued at $3,000, to undergraduate students to undertake research activities on one of three specific research projects over the 2021-22 summer period:

  • Development of a tool to assess school food environments in the pacific islands
  • Construction of a dataset documenting pearl exports from Papua New Guinea
  • Evaluation of the PAC24: an innovative online dietary assessment tool designed for Pacific Island countries

Students will be mentored by an academic supervisor from ACPIR and also a postgraduate peer throughout the ACPIR SRS program to help develop research skills, personal skills, and career planning. They are encouraged to work with the project team in contributing to a publication/other output as a named author.

For more information about the scholarship, the three projects, and how to apply, go to the Australian Centre for Pacific Islands Research (ACPIR) Summer Research Scholarship, or email acpir@usc.edu.au.

Applications close COB Friday 12 November 2021.
