Each year AMSI funds around 50 university students from AMSI Member universities across Australia to spend their summer holidays working on a research project with a supervisor.
Each Vacation Research Scholar experiences life as a researcher as they complete a project, write up their results and present to peers and supervisors at the VRS student conference AMSIConnect, held in Melbourne at the end of the summer.
Many universities encourage their students to participate in the AMSI Vacation Research Scholarship program to prepare for honours or PhD coursework.
