      Summer studentships

      Our summer studentship grant scheme introduces the UK's brightest undergraduate students to hearing, deafness and tinnitus research.

      The scheme allows undergraduates to take part in a research project during the summer, so we introduce them to this exciting field of work – and encourage them to consider it as a career. See our Biomedical Research Strategy for more information.

      • Value: £200 a week towards student living expenses.
      • Eligibility: Students and supervisors must be based at recognised UK universities or research institutes.

      In the last round of funding, we received 12 applications. Following review, six grants were awarded.

      Application procedure

      You can find the guidelines and application form below – please note that applications must be submitted by the proposed superviser.
