The Cormack Vacation Scholarship scheme is funded by the Robert Cormack Bequest, established to further the promotion of astronomical knowledge and research in Scotland. The scholarships allow undergraduate students studying astronomy, who have a class record indicative of good research potential, the opportunity to further their skills and experience by undertaking a period of research over the summer holiday period.
