Undergraduate student research awards

Each year, the University of Waterloo is awarded a specific number of Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) Undergraduate Student Research Awards. These fellowships enable undergraduate students to spend a term (Summer, Fall, or Winter) doing research in world-class laboratories supervised by experts in their field. Undergraduate students from other Canadian universities are especially invited to apply. 

These awards are meant to stimulate your interest in research in the natural sciences and engineering. They are also meant to encourage you to undertake graduate studies and pursue a research career in these fields.

The awards will be held for 4 months either in the Spring (May to August), Fall (September to December) or Winter (January to April) terms.
