These scholarships are open to Biology undergraduate students in their 2nd or 3rd year of study. Applications are ranked on the basis of academic merit. Scholarships are valued at $275 (tax-free) per week for a total of 3 weeks. Applications generally open in November each year and further details and instructions will be available below.
