Undergraduate Vacation Scholarship Scheme

We are now inviting applications for our 2017 Summer Vacation Scholarship Scheme.

Group of Students-Crop 1

Funds are available for six undergraduate students to undertake a six to eight-week research project (with a stipend of £250 per week). Research projects will be supervised by our research teams based at either our Chelsea or Sutton site.


The scheme is for undergraduate students at UK Higher Education institutions in the middle years (i.e. second of three, second/third of four) of their undergraduate degrees. Applications are encouraged from students who have not previously undertaken any form of summer placement. Placements will be offered to exceptional students.
