The 2014 USSRF competition will be announced soon. The tentative deadline is early March.
The Undergraduate Student Summer Research Fellowships (USSRF) provides an opportunity for continuing undergraduate students at Queen’s to develop their research skills under the guidance of a faculty researcher. Over the course of the summer, students will develop a research project in an area of interest and/or participate in the research program of a selected researcher.
The program is intended to provide students with meaningful opportunities to engage in discovery based learning and to develop research and presentation skills.
The program is targeted to students enrolled in social sciences, humanities, fine arts, and education, where summer student research funding is typically less available. Students may consider projects in disciplines outside of their own field of study or outside of the three focus study areas, as well as those directly connected to their prime area of study.
The total funding available for the program is $100,000 with a maximum of 21 summer fellowships to be awarded for 2013. Up to two of the 21 fellowships will be offered to students whose projects take place at the Bader International Study Centre (BISC) at Herstmonceux Castle, East Sussex, England.
