The University of Auckland (UoA) Northern Hemisphere Summer Research Scholarships, now in its second year, enable Masters and undergraduate students (in their penultimate year) to spend up to 10 weeks in Auckland conducting a supervised research project. Students had to choose from a list of research projects provided by UoA and will receive a $2,000NZD contribution to airfare as well as a stipend of approximately $5,500NZD.
