Undergraduate Research Award: Faculty of Architecture Information Session

Wondering what to do next summer?

Why not experience research with a professor in the Faculty of Architecture? 

Professors regularly contribute to the advancement of knowledge and culture through their research, scholarship and creative activities. To encourage involvement of undergraduate students in research, the University of Manitoba has established the Undergraduate Research Award. This award allows students to be mentored by a professor of their choice while working as a research assistant for 16 weeks in the summer. Student winners will receive $7,000.00 and gain valuable experience in their field, while professors benefit from skilled support.

The application process requires students interview two eligible professors, write short summaries of their research, and describe how participating in one of these research areas may advance long-term career aspirations. 

Deadline: January 24, 2020

Full application details are available here.

This Faculty of Architecture information session brings together past student winners of the Undergraduate Research Award and professors to discuss their research and/or their experience participating in this award program.
