The Vi Watson Vacation scholarships provide students with the financial support required to continue their research over the summer break. Apart from the overall merit of the application, factors taken into account will include the project's clear relevance to asthma, realistic goals and the applicant's personal responsibility for the project or a specific sub-study of a more comprehensive investigation. A summary of the proposed project should be provided (collaborative projects will require separate applications from each applicant showing divisions of responsibility) and applicants will need to gain the acceptance of an appropriately qualified supervisor and the approval of the institution in which the work of the project will be undertaken.
Funding of $200 per week is provided for a maximum of 10 weeks over the summer break. Applicants must be Australian residents and all research funded by Asthma Foundation WA must be based in Western Australia.
Please note students who have completed their honours degree are not eligible for this scholarship and previous Vi Watson scholarship recipients will not be considered.
Application details: As these may vary from year to year, please refer to the information page (see link below).
