Each year applications are invited for research bursaries intended for undergraduate students wishing to pursue a 4-6 week summer research project in the School of Mathematics, Statistics and Applied Mathematics, usually starting in May.  Each bursary has a value of €500 (or possibly more in certain cases).

These internship bursaries are available to undergraduate students of any nationality and university.  Preference will be given to students in the penultimate year of their undergraduate studies.  

Eligible supervisors are listed under "Academic Staff" on the School of Mathematics, Statistics and Applied Mathematics website.  Candidates should make contact directly with a prospective supervisor to discuss a project and to arrange for the sumission of the required recommendation by the propspective supervisor.
