NSERC USRA Summer

NSERC USRA Summer



The NSERC Undergraduate Student Research Awards (USRAs) provide a stipend of at least $6,076 for 16 weeks of full-time work in the summer, for independent research in mathematics under the supervision of a UBC faculty member.
Students in the past have found this program to be academically rewarding, as well as being useful for resume-building and for getting enrolled into a graduate program. The opportunity to get to know a faculty member and their research can also be extremely valuable.
The awards are available to Canadian citizens and permanent residents pursuing undergraduate studies and in very good academic standing (average over 80% in Math courses). Details regarding eligibility and frequently asked questions can be found on the NSERC website (www.nserc.ca). International students may apply for a Work Learn International Undergraduate Research Award.
