Bradshaw-Eagle Undergraduate Research Scholarship

This AVA scheme supports undergraduates who wish to carry out supervised summer research projects during the middle years of their degree in a vision laboratory, normally in a UK Higher Education Institution.  The Scholarship will provide a stipend (£200 per week for subsistence, for up to 8 weeks) to support undergraduates to carry out a self-contained vision-related research project in the laboratory of an AVA member.  The purpose of the scheme is to allow the student to experience a real research environment and to be trained to carry out a piece of scientific research with the aim of encouraging them to consider an academic research career. For more information about the Bradshaw-Eagle memorial award and to download the application form, please visit http://www.theava.net/awards/bradshaw-eagle.php

Eligibility: The project supervisor will be responsible for the application and will be the formal award-holder, if an award is offered. They must be an AVA member.  The supervisor must hold an established academic position, normally within a UK university. They must be able to guarantee the student space, and full supervision, in their laboratory for the project period.   Preference will be given to applicants who have not held this award in the past. Only one application per student and supervisor is allowed in any one year. Supervisors must be able to confirm that the student has not obtained an award from any other source for this project.

Students must be studying a relevant discipline (usually psychology, biology, optometry or a related discipline) and should be in the middle years of their degree program (i.e. not the first year, nor the last year, of studies) when the application is submitted.

Funding criteria: Projects should fall within the field of vision research, as judged by the AVA Committee, in the sphere of interest of journals including Perception, Vision Research and the Journal of Vision.  Applications should be submitted by the supervisor, with relevant sections of the application form completed by the student. The project should be a self-contained piece of academic research with a clearly defined objective, and will be judged on scientific merit of the proposed work, quality of the training/experience provided to the student, and last but not least on the student's academic record and aptitude for research.

Deadline: The deadline for application is 5pm, 17th March 2017. The form should be emailed to Jasna Martinovic ( j.martinovic at abdn.ac.uk<mailto:j.martinovic at abdn.ac.uk> ).
Funding decisions will be announced in mid-May 2017 and the projects can start from June 2017 onwards.

Awarded Scholarships: An award letter will be sent to the supervisor. The award will be made by a single payment after the student has completed the scholarship project and the supervisor has submitted the AVA Scholarship Report form. Form must be submitted before the end of October following the summer vacation when the project took place.
