University Student Summer Internship Program (USSIP)- 2022-2023
Academic Unit: Inquire with Unit
Memorial Deadline: Tuesday 22nd, February 2022
External Deadline: Tuesday 22nd, February 2022
Undergraduate research incentive funding aims to stimulate heightened interest of graduate studies and research careers among undergraduate students; create a bridge between faculty members wishing to nurture such interests and students willing to engage in research; and, promote a culture of research intensity among undergraduate students. This funding will also provide research-based supervisory opportunities for faculty members in areas with low graduate enrollments, or currently having little or no access to research-based graduate programs.
Each year, through the University Summer Student Internship Program (USSIP), 10 summer internships will be awarded through a competitive application process with the expectation that the funds will be used to stimulate research intensity through student engagement. Competitive awards will be based on: Academic excellence of student applicant; quality of proposed summer research project; and quality of the supervisor’s recommendation.
Undergraduate Students, who meet the eligibility requirements and are interested in carrying out a 13- week (or 16-week) research/development work term, under the supervision of a faculty member, are invited to submit an application to USSIP. Students are limited to applying under one department/academic unit. Research awards resulting from Memorial’s USSIP competition may be held in the Summer 2022 semester.
In preparing a submission of the application package, students are expected to consult with a Supervisor/ Department/Faculty to confirm funding and to finalize a summer research project.
*Please note that if the deadline date falls on a weekend, applications will be due on the first work day following the deadline.
