Summer Scholars Program (UQ)

The University of Queensland in partnership with the ARC Centre of Excellence for the Dynamics of language intends to offer regular summer scholarships to several students.

What is the Summer Scholars Program?

A Summer Research Scholarship or Summer Internship at the University of Queensland is an exceptional research opportunity for undergraduate students, providing insight into what studying for a graduate research degree is all about. The scholarship or internship package gives you the opportunity to stretch your boundaries by undertaking research projects and activities during the summer program.


These programs are only available to current University of Queensland students. For information on how to apply, please go to


Dialectology in Australian Kriol

This project will suit students in the latter stages (2nd and 3rd year) of a linguistics degree, particularly those with an interest in Indigenous languages and/or sociolinguistics.

For further information contact Dr Greg Dickson:

The sound patterns of Sahul - the continent of Australia-New Guinea

You will need some background in linguistics (e.g. UQ’s LING1000 and LING1005 courses). A more advanced background is a plus, especially in phonology and morphology, as is a background in computer science and/or mathematics.
