USRA and SURA application information

The Faculty of Science has 2 competitive programs of paid employment for science undergraduate students interested in conducting research projects with Faculty of Science academic staff members:

1. NSERC Undergraduate Student Research Awards (USRA) program

2. Faculty of Science Undergraduate Research Awards (SURA) program

Each program has its own eligibility requirements and the prospective students are responsible for completing and submitting their own applications. The purpose of these programs is to introduce science undergraduate students to academic research outside the course-based laboratory setting. While there is no academic credit for these programs, receipt of these awards and the experienced gained over the 16 weeks are excellent additions to the students’ resume and will improve their employability and scholarship potential.

The deadline for application submission for the 2018-2019 award cycle is Thursday 01 February 2018.
