The Department of Kinesiology and Physical Education would like to congratulate this year's NSERC (USRA) Award Recipients.

The NSERC (Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council) Undergraduate Student Research Awards (USRA) in Universities program is meant to nurture interests and fully develop potential for research careers in the natural sciences and engineering. USRAs are also meant to encourage graduate studies in these fields. It is an opportunity to gain research experience in an academic setting, while receiving financial support. Recipients engage in a research and development activity in the area of natural sciences or engineering, under the supervision of a McGill Faculty of Science professor.
