The University of Sussex Junior Research Associate (JRA) scheme is a pioneering project which aims to develop future research leaders. It encourages talented and ambitious undergraduates to consider a career in research following graduation. The scheme recognises academic excellence and drive by supporting our best undergraduates during the summer vacation as they work alongside Sussex’s top research faculty on real-life research projects.
The Doctoral School offers a number JRA bursaries worth up to £1,800 each. The purpose of these bursaries is to provide an opportunity for talented and ambitious undergraduates to participate in original research with staff and other members of the University community during the summer vacation. It is expected that JRAs will be seriously considering post-graduate research and the scheme aims to help them realise this ambition.
