The National Museum of Australia in partnership with the Humanities Research Centre at the Australian National University welcomes summer scholars to Canberra in January and February each year.

The summer scholars program provides scholarships for students who are in the third or fourth year of an undergraduate degree or undertaking early-stage postgraduate program. Applications are invited from students specialising in humanities and social sciences fields, who are interested in exploring traditional and non-traditional research outcomes.
