NSERC has recently announced that the University of Toronto will receive 7 additional USRA awards.  These awards can be held during the winter term (16 week term anytime between January 2017 and April 2017).

Due to the limited number of awards and a short turnaround, RSO will be holding an internal competition for applications.  Please submit all completed applications to myself for the internal deadline of January 9, 2017 by 9:00 am (Firm deadline).  Additional information on the application requirements can be found on our website:  http://www.research.utoronto.ca/research-funding-opportunities/undergraduate-student-research-award/

In addition, I would like to highlight some of the key eligibility requirements for students wishing to hold one of these awards in the fall term:

  • You may hold only one USRA per fiscal year (May 1 to April 30).
  • have completed all the course requirements of at least the first year of university study (or two academic terms) of your bachelor’s degree;
  • you must work full time hours during the tenure of award and not be enrolled in classes
  • have been registered in at least one of the two terms immediately before holding the award in a bachelor’s degree program at an eligible university;
  • not have started a program of graduate studies in the natural sciences or engineering at any time
