Undergraduate Vacation Scholarship Scheme

We are no longer inviting applications for our 2016 Summer Vacation Scholarship Scheme.

For 2016, funds are available for five 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 were encouraged from students who had not previously undertaken any form of summer placement. Placements will be offered to exceptional students.


The deadline for submission of applications to the ICR by supervisors is 18 March 2016. Students were asked to make contact well in advance of this date (by 26 February 2016). This date has now passed and supervisors are no longer considering any new applications.

Scholarship funding will be allocated through a competitive selection process, and applications that are successful will be announced in early May 2016.

Demand for these scholarships will be high so we cannot guarantee that Team Leaders/designated contacts will be able to respond to all enquiries they receive. If you have not been contacted by 15 March 2016 please assume that your application was not successful this time.

You can also contact Dr Isabelle Kirby for further information.
