The NSERC Undergraduate Student Research Award (USRA) is a great opportunity for undergraduates to work with a researcher and carry out full-time research for a term. The goal of the program is to stimulate your interest in research and to encourage you to pursue a future in research and/or better prepare you for a graduate studies degree. If you 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. 

If you have any questions, please contact Shoshannah Holdom.
