SURE 2024 Student Information Session

Date: January 16th, 2024
Time: 11.30am- 12.30pm
Location: FDA 5


How to Apply to SURE

  1. Plan to attend to the SURE Information Session (see date above).
  2. Review available projects on the SURE Projects tab (menu on left).
  3. Contact the supervisor(s) of projects in which you’re interested to discuss your interest in the research, and the anticipated research tasks and deliverables for the project.
  4. If you and the supervisor tentatively agree that you should apply to the project, proceed to the Online Student Application form (below).
  5. Students may submit a maximum of 3 applications. If a student qualifies for more than one project, it is assumed that they wish to work on all projects equally and thus may be placed in a project at random. Therefore, should the supervisor and student agree to work together, the supervisor should rank only one student and the student should apply to only one project.
  6. Please submit a new application form for each project you apply to. Once the Online Student Application has been completed and your transcript uploaded, please save a copy and email it to your prospective supervisor along with a copy of your Official University Transcript (McGill students may submit their unofficial Minerva transcripts). External students will be asked to submit an official transcript if they are selected.
  7. We anticipate a high level of participation in this program, and we therefore recommend that you discuss your candidacy with potential supervisors well ahead of the deadline. Note: Application packages (i.e., application form and transcript) are to be submitted to your intended supervisor via email.
  8. SURE, and NSERC USRAs will be awarded on a competitive basis and award decisions will be based on CGPA and academic credentials.
  9. Second Round:  There will be a second round in March for those that have already applied.

Application Notes

  • Please complete one application per project.  Please ensure to print/save to PDF so that you have something to email the professor(s).
  • Requests to cancel already submitted projects cannot be accommodated after 4pm on January 30th, 2024.
  • Please note that if you have not heard from the supervisor, please go ahead and submit the online form.
  • Students are allowed to apply for 3 projects only - 1 form per project.
  • The application form is open until the end of day, January 30th, 2024.
  • If you forgot to save the application, please send the automatic response confirmation email to the supervisor along with a copy of your transcript. Please do not resubmit a new form.

Frequently Asked Questions
 

The Summer semester at my University is less than 16 weeks. Can the SURE program be shortened to accommodate my schedule?

Unfortunately, to be eligible for the SURE program, students MUST be able to commit 16 weeks of full-time work. If your summer is shorter, you may wish to explore the possibility of working in a lab independently of the SURE program. For independent undergraduate research, the student is responsible for finding a research supervisor and registration as an Undergraduate Research Trainee

Will choosing the S/U option affect my eligibility for the SURE program?

Choosing S/U option for any courses will not have an impact on your eligibility for SURE. However, SURE supervisors may wish to consider your performance in a particular course that is relevant for their project.

What if I don’t have 3.0 CGPA?

As SURE is considered to be a scholarship/award, only students having a CGPA of 3.0 or higher will be considered. If you do not have a CGPA of 3.0, you may apply to work with your professor independent of the SURE program.

How do I know if I qualify for a professors’ research area?

Seek out the professor and discuss your candidacy with him/her; you don’t know until you try.

Is there a formal way to contact the professors?

You can contact a professor by email to book an appointment or visit them during their office hours (if regulations allow students/staff on campus). Non-McGill students may contact the professor via email as an appointment would not be necessary. Please note that the SURE Administration Office cannot contact professors on behalf of students.

Where do I submit my application form?

The application must be completed online. Application forms and your Official Transcript must be emailed to the professor by the appropriate deadline date. Non-McGill students may submit their application and supporting documentation by email directly to the professor by the deadline date.

What is length of program and how much work is involved per week?

SURE starts in May and lasts 16 weeks and you can expect to participate each week on a project for approximately 35 hours per week. SURE positions are full-time positions for the entire 16 week period.  A vacation request may be accommodated if not in conflict with any SURE events and if the student will make up the missed time; discuss with your SURE supervisor in advance. All special permissions must be communicated to sure-info.engineering [at] mcgill.caNEW:  SURE participants may register for one (1) summer course.

Do I get vacations/days off?

McGill will permit one (1) course of study during the tenure of award for any award holder to help keep time management at a reasonable level for  SURE participants. A second course may be permitted on a case-by-case basis only. Supervisor must give approval in writing to sure-info.engineering [at] mcgill.ca.

Can I complete both a SURE and Internship position at the same time?

No, students cannot hold both a SURE position and an Internship position during the summer term.

When/How do we get paid?

Students are paid on the 1st and 15th of the month - first payment is May 15th. Funds will be deposited to the bank account you indicated when setting up your Direct Deposit. Please note that some banks have a 3-5 day delay.

If I decline the Offer of Award, will I be eligible for another research project?

Applicants will only be selected for one award (therefore, please ensure that you would be equally willing to work on any of the projects you apply to). If you decline your Offer of Award, it is because you no longer wish to participate in the SURE Program and you will not be selected for other SURE projects in the same year. You are eligible to apply again in the following year.

Can I submit additional paperwork, ie CV?

The only required documents are the printed application form and transcript. Note, however, that you may be required to submit other documents to the professor along with your application. If you wish, you may also add your CV to the application.

I graduate in May, am I still eligible?

Yes, the program is open to May (Winter term) graduates. Students that graduated in December (Fall term) are not eligible.

How will I be notified that I have received a SURE?

The first round of acceptance emails will be sent by mid-February.

Can graduate students apply?

SURE is available to undergraduate students only.

Are we taxed?

This is a scholarship, therefore, you are not.

How do I know how much my supervisor is paying me?

  • The SURE award is valued at a minimum of $8,300.00 however, you may discuss directly with your supervisor.
  • The NSERC-USRA is valued at a minimum of $8,300.00 however, you may discuss directly with your supervisor.

Am I Eligible for Additional Funding?

Those SURE students who have received an NSERC-USRA award are eligible to apply for FRQNT Supplements – The Fonds de recherche du Quebec – Nature et technologies (FRQNT) offers a $1500 supplement to NSERC USRA holders enrolled at an eligible university in Quebec. Students apply directly to the FRQNT (not via McGill) and receive supplements from them.

Note: for NSERC USRAs held in the Summer, you will not be able to apply for the FRQNT supplement until you receive a letter (by email) from NSERC; this usually happens in July. The FRQNT application deadline is usually in late August. Please see the FRQNT webpage for further details.

What kind of visa is required for non-McGill students?

International students are required to research the visa requirements at: UGRT or CIC. Students without the appropriate visas and work permits will not be paid. Please note: The University is unable to provide a Human Resources Development Canada authorization (i.e. Labour Market Opinion) to support visa applications.

My University’s semester ends after May 1. Can I apply for SURE?

Students are encouraged to discuss slight changes to the start and end date of their SURE project with their supervisors. As long as you are available for a full 16 weeks, slight changes may be accommodated for external students.

Is the SURE Program available year-round?

The SURE Program is offered in the summer (May-August) only. If you wish to work in a lab throughout the rest of the year, you must arrange to do so directly with your intended supervisor. International students should review the requirements for McGill Undergraduate Research Trainees at https://www.mcgill.ca/students/international/students-coming-mcgill/unde....

Who owns the Intellectual Property (IP) developed during a SURE project?

As the SURE Program is a paid undergraduate traineeship which allows undergraduate students to be involved in an academic research project under the guidance of a McGill professor, SURE participants must agree to assign all right, title and interest to any Intellectual Property developed in the project to the supervising professor. You may still be considered as an inventor or contributor in accordance with McGill’s Policy on Intellectual Property. If you think you might be bringing Background IP to a project, please discuss IP management with your supervising professor in advance.

Who do I contact if I encounter problems or issues during my SURE participation?

You should try to resolve conflicts or issues with your supervising professor first; if you aren’t comfortable with this, or if the issue persists, please contact sure-info.engineering [at] mcgill.ca.

The SURE experience

 

Young minds at McGill Engineering can rub shoulders with some of the world's leading thinkers through paid summer internships at McGill labs and research institutes.
