NSERC Undergraduate Student Research Awards (USRA) Summer 2018

Posted by Stephanie Rogers on January 30, 2018 in News

The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) sponsors a program of Undergraduate Student Research Awards (USRA) for outstanding undergraduate students who are interested in research.

USRAs are meant to nurture and encourage undergraduate students towards graduate studies and a research career in the natural sciences and engineering.

These awards provide financial support through your host university and allow you to gain research work experience that complements your studies in an academic setting. NSERC encourages qualified Aboriginal students to apply for this award.

USRAs supplement the salary of a summer student working on an individual research project, designed with a faculty member who holds an NSERC Research Grant.

Faculty of Agriculture USRAs will be held for 16 weeks in the summer of 2018. More detailed available information is available here
