Undergraduate Student Research Awards

Undergraduate Science Student Research Awards

The following award programs fund undergraduate student research projects at McGill (and sometimes off-campus), usually in the summer.

Please also consult for any new programs that may have been added.

NSERC Undergraduate Student Research Awards

NSERC Undergraduate Student Research Awards

The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada Undergraduate Student Research Awards (NSERC USRA) in Universities program supports 16 consecutive weeks of paid full-time research under the supervision of a professor who holds an NSERC research grant. It is an excellent way to prepare for graduate studies or a future career in science. This program is offered at other universities across Canada.

To apply, you must be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada. See for more information.

SURA: Science Undergraduate Research Awards

SURA: Science Undergraduate Research Awards

Science Undergraduate Research Awards—SURAs—are for both Canadian and international McGill students registered in a B.Sc. or B.A. & Sc. science undergraduate program (B.A. students may wish to look into programs offered by the Faculty of Arts). SURAs are broadly similar to the NSERC USRA; two differences are that international students may apply, and supervision is not restricted to professors with NSERC research grants and thus SURAs can also support social science or medical science research.
