“The VRS project pushes you out of your intellectual comfort zone
and challenges you to learn new things and develop skills to
solve unexpected problems.”

Tobin South, The University of Adelaide

Current Projects

Fifty AMSI Vacation Research Scholars from 19 AMSI Member universities are undertaking supervised research for their chosen project. Each is preparing a research report and blog for submission, and will present their research and findings at AMSIConnect in February 2022.
