The Undergraduate Research Scholarship gives students the opportunity to live a very unique experience. The recipients work with scientists and take part in important scientific discoveries before they even start their studies.
This award gives students the opportunity to work with one of the University of Ottawa's world-class research groups. They earn $5,000 as a research assistant to one of the professors during the summer (July and August) before their first year of studies. They can also expand their research experience and contribution the following summer (May, June, July and August) if they do well in their first year of studies. They will earn $6,500 for the second summer employment.
