FASS Summer Research Internship 2020

The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASS) Undergraduate Summer Research Internship program is now accepting applications for summer 2020. This initiative invites students to submit a research proposal for a project that they wish to work on during the summer of 2020 in collaboration with a permanent faculty member in FASS. The 1-page research proposal must be supported by a statement from the faculty member who will be supervising the project. Student proposals must be clearly distinct from the faculty member’s ongoing research program. Students must also submit their resume, a copy of their audit and a 1-page cover letter, clearly stating 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 their second year of their undergraduate program, have a minimum CGPA of 9.0 and be taking a program and/or a major in the FASS. Student are only eligible for funding in one faculty and cannot hold two funded positions in different faculties. Students who are graduating in June 2020 are eligible for this program. Students can only hold this internship once during their undergraduate degree.

Students will receive a stipend of $7500 (including 4% vacation pay) biweekly, over the course of the summer.  The expectation is that the research project undertaken will constitute a full-time position during the summer term.

In fall 2020, students will present their completed research projects at a FASS reception held in their honour and provide a 500 word summary of the research, to be posted on the FASS website.
