The School of Physics & Astronomy is currently offering their Career Development Summer Scholarship. This is a Scholarship that provides a stipend of £1,500 to 48 undergraduate students so they can undertake industry or academic projects. It’s directed to students in a Physics and Astronomy programme who are currently in year 3 BSc (Hons), or years 3/4 if enrolled on an MPhys programme.
The Wiki page for the Scholarships is here.
They are still receiving applications, as the deadline to submit is 5 March 2018.
I am happy to give feedback on CVs/applications for these. Catch me at my Magnet Cafe drop-in Thursdays 12 -1.30 or book an appointment with me or my colleagues through MyCareerHub
I ran a couple of sessions last year with Ross Galloway to prepare students for the projects and answer questions they had. I also offered a session towards the end of the placements to help students reflect on what they had gained as a result of their projects and feel more confident presenting it (on applications, interviews, at conferences….)
I will be doing the same this year and we’ll let you know dates as soon as they School arranges them.
