Summer Research Opportunities

The Undergraduate Summer Research Fellowship Program encourages qualified students to broaden their experience in chemistry by doing research during the summer months in conjunction with a member of the professorial staff. Students are encouraged to make individual arrangements with staff members. It would be helpful to check out the individual faculty research homepage to determine various areas of interest. Applications to the summer research fellowships are available during the latter part of the Fall semester (information can be found here) and announcements are made around that time in all Chemistry classes.

NSERC Undergraduate Student Research Award (USRA): The objective of the USRA program is to stimulate students. interest in research in the natural sciences and engineering, and to encourage students to undertake graduate studies and pursue a research career in these fields. Students must have completed at least 3 or 4 academic terms of their bachelor.s degree to be eligible to hold a university award. The normal duration of the award is 16 consecutive weeks working in the laboratory of the participating faculty members.

University of Toronto Excellence Awards (UTEA) in the Natural Sciences and Engineering: The purpose of the UTEA is to provide additional opportunities for research experience at the undergraduate level in the natural sciences and engineering (NSE); to augment the formal research courses offered by the University of Toronto; to give undergraduate students opportunities to experience different approaches to research in various fields; to help students learn and appreciate the investigative methodology of areas of particular interest; and, to provide students with an experience that will allow them to make informed decisions about pursuing careers in research. The duration is sixteen (16) full consecutive weeks in the summer term.
