Undergraduate Student Summer Research Fellowships (USSRF)

  Updated BISC Information: Due to current pandemic related travel restrictions, the BISC stream of the 2021 USSRF program will be running remotely. We are offering 1 BISC opportunity to work with Dr. Ruth Cereceda on her research project titled: ’ Making sense of experiential learning. Strategies to support students in the identification of learning skills’. The deadline for the BISC stream has been extended to Friday, March 5 by noon. If you are interested in this unique experience please follow the guidelines and submit the application below. 

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. 

Application deadline for the 2021 USSRF program is

9:00 am EST, Monday, March 1, 2021

All applicants will be contacted with a decision in mid-April
