Undergraduate Awards

16-week summer fellowships in Complex Dynamics: deadline 5pm, April 27, 2017

Training: The Complex Dynamics network is recruiting undergraduates from within and outside Canada to participate in a 16-week research training experience.  Applicants who are currently enrolled in a full-time undergraduate program in an NSERC-related field (natural science and engineering) are eligible to apply. Please note that medical residents and students holding NSERC, CIHR, or SSHRC fellowships for the same time period are not eligible to apply. The CD-Encounter research experience is a 16-week, full-time research fellowship, which will start between May 3-15, 2017. Students accepted in the program will receive a $4,500 stipend from the Create grant plus $1125 from the supervisors' individual grant toward the stipend. CD summer traineeships are open to citizens of all countries; all other NSERC eligibility rules for Undergraduate Research Awards, available at http://www.nserc-crsng.gc.ca/Students-Etudiants/UG-PC/USRA-BRPC_eng.asp, apply to ACN applicants.

Instructions to applicants: Please carefully examine the research interests of the research members in this network who can serve as supervisors. Detailed descriptions of the research opportunities can be found at the websites of Potential Supervisors listed on the Mentors page. Only applicants sponsored by supervisors who are members of the CD network are eligible to apply. We strongly recommend that applicants first contact the prospective supervisors via email to determine whether they are accepting undergraduate students for summer 2017 in the Complex Dynamics Training grant. Due to the limited number of awards (4), only one application per applicant and one application per supervisor will be considered.  Please complete the application form below, obtain all required signatures, and email the completed form to the email address listed on the form:
