Experience Research

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 cultural well-being through their research, scholarship and creative activities. To assist professors and involve undergraduate students in their research endeavours, the University of Manitoba has established the Undergraduate Research Award. This award allows students to be mentored full-time with a professor of their choice for 16 weeks in the summer. Student winners will receive a $7,000.00 award and gain valuable experience in their field of interest, while professors earn skilled support. This year, the University of Manitoba will offer 172 awards, including up to ten awards dedicated to Indigenous students and up to two awards for community-based research projects.

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 further your own long-term career aspirations.

Deadline: January 26, 2018.

Full application details are available here.
This Faculty of Architecture information session on Jan. 8th brings together past student winners of the Undergraduate Research Award and interested professors to discuss their research and/or their experience participating in this award program.
