      • Science

        There is one application process for the Undergraduate Research Awards program.

        Step 1: Choose a research project

        Students may select a maximum of two summer projects from the project summaries listed in the Available research projects section below. We encourage students to choose two projects they are interested in so they have a backup in case their first choice is awarded to another student.

        Note: You may apply to projects outside of your faculty, provided you hold the skills and qualifications identified in the project description. For example, students in the Faculty of Science may apply to projects listed in the Faculty of Health Sciences if they meet the qualifications listed in the project description.

        Step 2: Complete your electronic application package 

        This application package includes:

      • Undergraduate Research Award Application Form
      • Statement of Interest (page 3 of the Application form)
      • Request for the university's Official Transcript of Academic Record Form
      • Note: Non-University of Ontario Institute of Technology students who do not have transcripts from the university do not fill out this request but must instead provide a hard copy of their transcripts from their university.
