Undergraduate Research Awards

Each year Undergraduate students apply to participate in a 12 to 16 weeks of full-time research activity under the supervision of an Ontario Tech University professor. These projects allow our students to gain research experience in an exciting academic setting while receiving financial support.

If you are looking to gain research experience in your field of study and work with leading professors on innovative research projects, our university offers a number of undergraduate research awards for summer project opportunities. Please visit the Office of the Vice-President Research and Innovation Website for more information on this program.
