NSERC Undergraduate Student Research Awards (USRA) 2018-19
Six (6) NSERC USRA awards are available to our department for 2018-2019!
The standard duration of each award is a minimum of 16 weeks of full-time, continuous work. For this reason, time-off in-lieu of vacation pay is not allowed. Faculty must be a NSERC Research award holder in order to supervise and USRA holders must be paid a minimum $1,125.00 for the 16 week period.
According to the USRA program guidelines, students should not receive academic credits for the work done during the term of the USRA, but they are allowed to take one course if special arrangements are made prior to beginning the course. Students are not permitted to conduct thesis research during the term of the award. If a student is interested in taking a course, please contact Jessica Worsley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Term Start Date
