Chemistry Undergraduate Research Awards | There are a number of research awards and scholarships available through the Chemistry Department that will hire students to do research over the summer. Some of these awards are for on-campus positions, and others include travel to other universities for research.

St. Thomas More College Engaged Learning Fund | A competitive grant provided to successful candidates to participate in an event or project regarding social justice or community service-learning, harmonized with STM’s Catholic mission, that benefit students or the larger community.

Kinesiology One Credit Research Experience | Research is knowledge creation. Research is asking questions and figuring out the best way to answer them. The OCRE classes will give you an opportunity to experience real research related to the Kinesiology classes you are taking. You will get hands-on experience doing a real experiment, but with a reasonable workload (~ 1hour/week) that matches the one-credit expectation. Class size is small and there is weekly direct contact with the instructor.

Psychology Department Undergraduate Research Conference | Celebrating course-based and honours research projects. 

Toxicology Undergraduate Research Experience Program (TUREP)Offers more laboratory or field based research experience opportunities to undergraduate students, especially those in earlier years of their academic program. The TUREP is a research experience program, not an independent research project; it is not part of a student’s formal academic program.

WCVM Undergraduate Summer Research and Leadership Program | Provides research experiences to undergraduate students who are enrolled in veterinary medicine as well as in pre-health sciences courses at the University of Saskatchewan.

College of Medicine Undergraduate Research | Dean's Projects (for students in the College of Medicine), Biomedical projects (for students in biomedical sciences), InterD projects (students co-supervised by PharmNut and Medicine) and more.
