Each year the Council offers five summer research scholarships to students to work collectively on a range of research projects.
The Council's summer research scholarship programme is a 400-hour commitment (approximately 10 weeks) for each student over the summer holiday period.
Please note this scholarship is not part of the University of Canterbury summer scholarship programme administered by the University. It is an independent scholarship programme administrated by the Christchurch City Council. All scholarship payments to students are income tax exempt.
