Undergraduate Research Award
The NSERC USRA is an Undergraduate Summer Research Award, which provides support to undergraduate students who are conducting summer research under the supervision of an IBBME faculty member.
Students are expected to reach out to IBBME faculty members (Your supervisor must be selected from our department or cross-appointed to our department) to secure a research position. To look up supervisor emails, please see our Core Faculty & Cross Appointed pages.
Note: faculty members no longer need to hold an active NSERC grant to be able to supervise students.
Work terms are 16 consecutive weeks from May 1st to September 30th.
Exact start and end dates are determined when the undergraduate research award results are announced in conjunction with arrangements with individual supervisors.
