Arts Adelaide Summer Research Scholarship Winners Announced

The Adelaide Summer Research Scholarship winners for 2015 – 2016 have been awarded, with twelve Faculty of Arts students successfully winning a place.

The Summer Research Scholarships provide undergraduate students the opportunity to take on a six-week research project at the University of Adelaide during the summer vacation. Each student is matched with an academic and provides support on a research project. The aim of the scholarship is to foster an interest in research by students who might not have considered a career in research.

Congratulations to the following students on their placements:
