The USSRF provides an experiential learning opportunity for continuing undergraduate students enrolled in a bachelor’s degree program at Queen’s to participate in social sciences, humanities and/or creative arts research under the supervision of a Queen’s faculty member. Over the course of the summer, students will develop a research project in social sciences, humanities, or creative arts. Students may consider projects in disciplines outside of their own field of study or outside of their focus study areas, as well as those directly connected to their prime area of study.
The program is intended to provide students with meaningful opportunities to engage in discovery-based learning and to develop research and presentation skills. A minimum of twenty-one fellowships, dependent on funding, will be available.
