The Council is offering 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. 

Students will be involved in a range of week day, evening and weekend interviewing at specific services depending on when residents use those services. This time will be counted toward the total number of hours required by each student to complete the project.

As such, flexibility in working hours is required and students need to be available for evening and weekend work when required. Students will be expected to fit in with the interview schedule drawn up by the Monitoring and Research Team.

The scholarship will run from 19 November 2018 through to mid-February 2019.

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.
