HRB Summer Student Scholarships

Description: The Health Research Board (HRB) provides summer scholarships for undergraduate students in health-related disciplines to support their participation in research during the Summer break. The purpose of the student scholarships is to encourage an interest in research and to give the student an opportunity to become familiar with research techniques.

 

Eligibility: Undergraduate students who are studying in a relevant discipline at a university/third level institute in Ireland but not in the final year of their degree course and who have not previously received a Summer Student Scholarship from the HRB. In line with the HRB strategy the project must fall within one of the following research areas:  patient oriented research, health services research, or population health research. Applications that focus solely or predominantly on basic biomedical research are not eligible.

Value: The amount paid will be €250 per week for a maximum of eight weeks and is paid to the student by the nominated Host Institution.

 

Past Deadline: January 20th 2014 (the 2015 date is not yet available)
