Vacation Scholarships

Vacation Scholarships

Our Vacation Scholarships provide paid opportunities for undergraduate students to discover our research.

Research project

You'll get to work on your own research project in animal behaviour during the summer.

These scholarships are a great way to get some laboratory and field experience. They can help you decide on your future career path.


While the majority of research will be done by you, you'll be guided and supervised by Centre members. We'll help you to:

  • design of your experiments
  • collect data
  • analyse your findings
  • and possibly even write up your study for publication

You will be encouraged to think independently about the direction of your project.

How to apply

Vacation scholarships take place between June and September each year.

Opportunities are usually advertised between January and April.
