FASS Undergraduate Research
Internship (Summer 2018)


The FASS Undergraduate Summer Research Internship program is now accepting applications for summer 2018. This initiative invites students to submit a research project that they propose to work on during the summer of 2018 in collaboration with a faculty member in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences.

The 1-page research proposal must be supported by a statement from the faculty member who will be supervising the project. Students must also submit their resume, an official transcript, and a 1-page cover letter setting out the project they would like to research and what skills and experiences they hope to gain through this program.


To be eligible students must have completed at least 2nd year of their undergraduate program and be taking a program and/or a major in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. (If students have two Majors, one of them must be in FASS. Students are only eligible for funding in one Faculty and cannot hold two funded positions in different faculties). Students who are graduating in June are eligible for this program.

Students will receive a stipend of $7500 (this total sum includes the 4% vacation pay that will be paid out, as well as statutory holidays) over the course of the summer. The expectation is that the research project undertaken will constitute a full-time occupation during the summer term.
