Undergraduate Research Internship (URI) program

The University of Waterloo established the Undergraduate Research Internship program (URI or URIP) as a funding initiative to encourage faculty members to hire undergraduate students to work on research under their supervision. The goal of the program is to stimulate students' interest in research and to encourage a future in research and/or better prepare students for a graduate studies degree.

If you're a student who would like to gain research work experience that complements your studies in an academic setting, this award provides you with financial support to do so. 

More information on internships is available from the Centre for Career Action.

Information on the URI process is available on Hire Waterloo.

If you have any questions, please contact Shoshannah Holdom.
