A new award offers undergraduate students in the humanities and social sciences an opportunity to try out a career in research.
SFU’s Vice-President Research is funding a pilot project for the Undergraduate Student Research Awards (VPR USRA), meant to stimulate interest in research in the social sciences and humanities and to encourage undergraduate students to undertake graduate studies.
Eligible applicants must work a minimum of 16 weeks under the supervision of a faculty supervisor who currently holds a SSHRC Standard Research Grant in your department. Awards are available for the spring 2011 term and can be held on a full-time or part-time basis.
The value of a full-time VPR USRA is $4,500 paid on a biweekly basis, over a minimum 16-week period and the value of a part-time VPR USRA is $2,250 paid on a biweekly basis, over a minimum 16-week period.
Application forms must be completed and submitted to the Dean of Graduate Studies Office by January 28, 2011.
