Our students can choose from a variety of research opportunities, including externally funded awards and grants.
Industry, government, private business, corporate offices, non-profit organizations—external funding comes from a variety of sources and sectors. For help looking for external funding opportunities in your field of interest, contact the Office of Research Services.
If you are interested in natural sciences or engineering, the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) sponsors annual Undergraduate Student Research Awards (USRA). Mentored by a faculty member, successful applicants participate in a full-time, 16-week summer research position.
