Our students are curious about the world around them. They have ideas to explore and creative impulses to nurture. At MacEwan University, we value student-engaged research and encourage curiosity.
The Undergraduate Student Research Initiative (USRI), a subcomittee of MacEwan's Research Council, is responsible for developing our student research strategy as outlined in the campus Strategic Plan for Research. The plan focuses on fostering student involvement in research and providing students with the opportunity to deepen their knowledge.
The USRI collaborates closely with the Office of Research Services (ORS) and facilitates faculty mentorship for students engaged in conducting research and disseminating findings. As well, the USRI sponsors two internal grants.
Since the USRI grants were established, many students have had the opportunity to explore their research passion. Find out which proposals received funding.
Application workshops and additional information
In the weeks prior to USRI grant deadlines, the Office of Research Services, together with the Grants Adjudication Committee, hosts workshops to support you with the application process. Check our Events page for workshop dates and details.
