The Health Research Board invites applications for Summer Student Scholarships from undergraduate students in a health or social care-related discipline to support their participation in research during the summer months in 2015.

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.

The nominated Host Institution will approve and submit each application on behalf of the applicant. Please make this a time consideration when preparing your grant application. Please see the Guidance Notes below for further details.
