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 social sciences, humanities, or fine arts 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.
Preference will be given to students enrolled in social sciences, humanities, creative arts, or concurrent education. Preference will also be given to students who have not previously held a USSRF.
The total funding available for the program is $100,000 with a maximum of 21 summer fellowships to be awarded for 2015. Up to three fellowships will be offered to students whose projects take place at the Bader International Study Centre (BISC) at Herstmonceux Castle, East Sussex, England.
