There are currently three undergraduate research funding opportunities for Summer 2021: SURA, NSERC USRA, and Schull Yang International Experience Awards. These allow students to engage in a full-time summer research activity, and to gain research experience in an exciting academic setting, while receiving financial support. These are open to all B.Sc. and B.A. & Sc. students in the Faculty of Science.

Excerpt from 'Metamorphosis of the solitary genius' Published on Nov 21 2019 on the CANADA'S INNOVATION LEADERS website (https://researchinfosource.com/cil/2019/editorials/metamorphosis-of-the-...)
This week, an article submitted by the Prof. Ariya's research group to ChemSusChem has been identified as VIP (very important article). The journal article is titled:
Congratulations to the Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences Weather Forecasting Team (Prof. John Gyakum, Dr. Eyad Atallah, Christopher McCray (PhD student), Kai Melamed-Turkish (MSc student), Yeechian Low (MSc student) for the Safety Ambassador 2019 award for all their weather related-services for major events such as convocation ceremonies for the past years to the Emergency Management and Preparedness Unit.
It is with great sadness that I convey the news that Roddy Rogers, Professor Emeritus in our department, Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences, has passed away on February 20.
Roddy, a giant in our field, was a world-renowned scientist, particularly in the areas of cloud physics and radar meteorology. His text, co-authored with Professor Yau, entitled “A short course in Cloud Physics” has been used by students and faculty throughout the globe.
Our very own Christopher McCray (PhD Student, McGill AOS) crunches Environment Canada numbers on rain, snow, temperature and freezing rain ' to quantify the weather whiplash Montrealers have been experiencing this winter'.
Congratulations to our very own undergraduate student Maria Gheta on leading the Martlets to a national championship in the Canadian University Artistic Swimming League.
Amélie Desmarais, our MSc student, attended the Emerging Leaders 2019 Conference that was held in Norway in January of this year.
Our department is happy to share another achievement of prof. Parisa Ariya's scientific group.
Congratulations to Professor Parisa A. Ariya and Research Associate Roya Mortazavi for their published paper:
Professor and Chair of our department, John Gyakum is featured in an article published in this week's issue of the The McGill Tribune. He is credited with coining the "bomb cyclone" term which has been trending in the national and international press, receiving huge amount of public attention before and in the aftermath of great blizzard storm at the beginning of this year.
