Are you a 3rd year UG student at the University of St Andrews or other Scottish University, interested in doing your own research project during the Summer 2022 under the supervision of a researcher based here at the Centre for Energy Ethics?
If so, get in touch with us regarding the Carnegie Vacation Scholarships!
The Vacation Scholarship is designed to allow students to gain research experience and skills between May and August which aims to encourage students to consider postgraduate studies. The funders are particularly interested in new, innovative research projects that would not normally be part of the student’s course and a specific hypothesis or research question and provides a weekly stipend based on the Scottish Living Wage. The research project can be undertaken at the student’s own university, a host research organisation elsewhere, as long as relevant research supervision and resources are available.
How to apply
Ask one of your tutors or lecturers if they would be willing to supervise your project and help you identify a possible topic for a Vacation Scholarship and with the application process.
Go to the trust’s website: https://www.carnegie-trust.org/award-schemes/vacation-scholarships/ . Go through the eligibility questionnaire and if eligible, follow the link to the online application form.
Deadline is 31 January 2021, 5PM
