Are you an active researcher interested in supporting future leading Indigenous researchers? Or are you an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander student interested in a career in research?
This highly successful research program is now entering its sixth year and applications will be opening soon. So get in early and find out more about the program and how you can get involved.
What Is Kungullanji?
Kungullanji is an Aboriginal word from the Yugambeh language meaning "to think". The Kungullanji Summer Research Program challenges undergraduate students to think about what they are learning in their coursework and how they might apply that knowledge to a research project. By providing a research experience and training, the program aims to develop work-ready graduates and create a pipeline to research careers.
This session will cover:
Benefits of Undergraduate Research for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander researchers
The Kungullanji Program framework and how we do things differently
Expectations and responsibilities of summer scholars and supervisors
Example projects and feedback from past summer scholars and supervisors
How you can be involved and what steps to take
At the end of the information session there will be a 'speed networking' activity for supervisors and students to meet with each other and past participants to learn more about the program and potentially start discussing projects.
To be held at Gold Coast, Nathan and Logan campuses
