Undergraduate Vacation Bursary
The undergraduate vacation bursary supports work on agreed research projects during the summer vacation.
The purpose of the bursaries is to provide undergraduates considering a research career with experience of plant pathology research. For experimental projects this will involve practical experience in a plant pathology laboratory. However, following the success of our “Lockdown Bursaries” in Summer 2020, funds can also be used to support “virtual” projects which can be done by a student working entirely remotely. This could include, for example, a literature review, bioinformatics, reanalysis of an existing data set, mathematical modelling, or any combination of these areas. Projects can be 6, 8 or 10 weeks in length.
