VUW Summer Research Scholarships

As one of the external partners of Victoria University of Wellington, Te Papa offers a few Summer Research Scholarships every year.

Victoria University of Wellington students will join our Natural History staff to gain experience and skills in collections-based research. Students are expected to work on their project for 10 weeks (400 hours) over the summer trimester, receiving a tax-free stipend of NZD $6,000.

Student applications typically open in September every year. Undergraduate, Honours, and Master’s students can join and you can find more information on eligibility and how to apply on VUW’s website.
