Undergraduate student research awards

There are a number of programs that provide funds to allow undergraduate students the opportunity to engage in research through which they benefit greatly from their experience under the supervison and mentorship of faculty members.

The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) funds a number of Undergraduate Student Research Awards (USRA) each year.  And the Faculty of Science at the University of Victoria funds the Science Undergraduate Research Awards (SURA)

The University of Victoria Vice-President Academic and Provost also sponsors undergraduate research through the Jamie Cassels Undergraduate Research Awards (JCURA).  Applications for these awards are handled separately through the Learning and Teaching Support and Innovation Centre (LTSI).
