Summer and Winter Research Projects

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies Unit's Summer and Winter Research Programs provide 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.

By participating in a research program, students will gain valuable academic and professional experience, develop analytical & critical thinking, and gain the chance to create networks with industry and academic contacts.

Research Scholars will receive a scholarship equivalent to $360 per week for the duration of the Summer or Winter Research project.

Participation is open to undergraduate, honours, or masters by coursework students, who have completed at least two years of study and are currently enrolled at the time of application.
