The purpose of the Social Science and Humanities Undergraduate Research Internship (SSHURI) is to support undergraduate students who undertake research during the summer under the direct supervision of a faculty member. The expectation is that students contribute to the professor’s research agenda while gaining useful academic research skills through their research experience.
The Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities will provide two Social Sciences and Humanities Undergraduate Research Internship awards, available to students at both campuses, each with a value of $4000.
How to Apply
Interested SSH faculty members are encouraged to respond to the call with a brief letter of intent that outlines:
- the nature and scope of the research project,
- the benefits that the student will gain by engaging in the research,
- a timeline of completion (i.e., between the end of June until the end of August),
- confirmation of the student’s interest and ability to participate in the internship.
