Canada Learning Initiative in China (CLIC) Research Internships
CLIC is a university consortium established in February 2016 which is currently made up of six Canadian U15 universities: Université Laval, Queen’s University, Université de Montréal, University of Alberta, University of Calgary, and University of Ottawa. It connects Canadian students at these select universities with fully-funded and meaningful opportunities to study and research in China while earning credits towards their degrees.
Undergraduate Student Research Awards Program (USRA) – Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC)
Undergraduate Student Research Awards (USRA) are meant to stimulate students interest in research in the natural sciences and engineering. They are also meant to encourage students to undertake graduate studies and pursue a research career in these fields. If you would like to gain research work experience that complements your studies in an academic setting, these awards can provide you with financial support through your host university. NSERC encourages qualified Aboriginal students to apply to this program.
