In order to maximise researchers’ time, universities often offer scholarships to graduate or undergraduate students to undertake basic research tasks to assist the principal researcher to complete a project. Selection of these students often relies solely on academic grades. This paper will briefly outline how a principal researcher used other criteria as well as academic achievement when selecting a student to assist with a research project. The benefits to both university and student will be explained, and the case made for all universities to review selection criteria.
