Are you interested in what research at University might look like? Have you already completed half of your degree?

Australian Indigenous Undergraduate students from around Australia are invited to apply for the inaugural ANU Indigenous Winter Research School (IWRS). IWRS is designed to bring together students from around the country to get a taste for what it means to do research at a top research university, to meet like-minded students, and to build a network of scholars to assist you on your tertiary journey.

IWRS runs over five days in July, with a mixture of seminars from leading ANU researchers, tours of ANU and Canberra, including areas of special importance to local communities and social events. You will be paired with an experienced academic staff member who will guide you in commencing a project in your area of interest. Bring your own project ideas, or be guided by us to help you develop a project proposal.
