Undergraduate Summer Research Awards (USRA)

Undergraduate summer research awards allow undergraduate students to get hands on research experience during the summer months, and to be paid for doing it! A USRA is a great opportunity to get a taste of what it’s like to do mathematical research.

NSERC, NSERC Aboriginal, and Faculty of Science Awards

These awards support research work done by undergraduates during the summer (16 weeks) under the supervision of one of the professor in the Faculty of Science. The amounts of the awards range between $5500 and $6000. Details on eligibility, deadlines, and application procedures for the USRAs can be found here.

If you are interested in applying for a USRA, you should first find a professor who is willing to supervise your research over the summer. You can learn about the research interests of the professors in the Mathematics Department at the research page, or by visiting personal pages of the corresponding professors; see this list.
