Hands-On Science Pacific scholarship

Hands-On Science is a programme intended to give students practical experience in research science. This kind of opportunity is usually only available to science graduate students.

The Hands-On Science fully-funded Pacific Scholarships are awarded to 6 students each year and are intended to inspire and motivate our young people who have a passion for the sciences and wish to develop their knowledge and skills alongside other like-minded students.
