Faculty of Nursing Undergraduate Student Summer Research Award and SSHRC Summer Student Award

The Faculty of Nursing offers a summer research program for undergraduate nursing students, providing them with an opportunity to experience the research environment first-hand. Students will be involved in a research project under the supervision of a Faculty of Nursing tenure track member. Students will engage in activities that develop their research skills and experience. The award is meant to encourage students to pursue graduate education and possibly a research career. The overall purpose of this program is to strengthen nursing-related research and talent development by providing research training support to students. The goal is to lead to the development of the next generation of nursing researchers.

The number of Faculty of Nursing Undergraduate Student Awards is dependent on the availability of funds. Eligible applications will be considered for SSHRC funding (see page 2 for eligibility requirements). The number of SSHRC awards is dependent on the number of eligible applications received and availability of funds from the Vice President Research Office.

The value of the summer studentship award is up to $2500/month, paid as a bursary and is therefore not subject to the Income Tax Act and Regulations of the Government of Canada. The award supports an engagement in research from May 1 to August 31 of the year of implementation. The minimum term of support is 2 months; the maximum is 3 months.

Deadline: Friday, April 1, 2016
