Carnegie Vacation Scholarships for Undergraduates

The Carnegie Vacation Scholarships aim to help undergraduates develop their independent research skills and help them learn to manage a research project in preparation for postgraduate study. This is done through a summer project and the research is often posted in academic journals or reported in conference presentations.
