Student summer research opportunities open to undergraduates

The Vice-Principal (Research) portfolio is seeking applicants for the Undergraduate Student Summer Research Fellowships (USSRF) program. This annual summer program offers opportunities for students to engage with research-based learning and develop their research and presentation skills.

USSRF primarily focuses on the promotion of research in the field of social sciences, humanities, and/or creative arts. This year, the program is offering a minimum of 21 fellowships at a value of $6,000 each.

To be eligible, student participants must be currently enrolled in a bachelor’s degree at the undergraduate level and must have completed a full year of studying at Queen’s. Additionally, students must be returning for undergraduate studies following the completion of the fellowship. Before the commencement of the research project, both the student and their faculty supervisor must submit all required documentation, including a completed application form from both parties. Working with a faculty supervisor at the undergraduate level is a unique aspect of the USSRF program, providing a window into the research process for students considering graduate studies.

Program applications are available on the Vice-Principal (Research) website and must be submitted by Monday, March 1, 2021. For more information on past USSRF projects, see The Gazette coverage of the 2020 participants for summaries and presentation recordings.
