Victoria Summer Research Scholarships

The University partners with companies, government agencies and professional groups during the summer months to tackle projects needing extra research support.

Victoria University of Wellington has top students from a variety of disciplines that can be available for 10-week research placements over summer.

Every placement is supported by a Victoria University Summer Research Scholarship. You and the University each contribute $3000 towards the student’s scholarship.


It’s a win-win for you and the University: you benefit from the student’s research and development skills and a student gets practical research experience.
