The Undergraduate Student Research Award was created to encourage and support students in their research endeavors. The award is given out annually to a student or team of students who have made significant contributions to their field of study. In order to be eligible for the award, students must be enrolled in an accredited undergraduate program and have completed at least one year of study. Additionally, they must have conducted their research under the supervision of a faculty member. This year’s recipient of the Undergraduate Student Research Award is John Smith for his work on the effects of technology on human behavior. John’s research has been published in several peer-reviewed journals and has helped to shape the way we think about the impact of technology on our society.

The award is open to all undergraduate students who have conducted research during their time at the university. Applicants must submit a research proposal, as well as a report on their research findings. They will also be required to present their findings at an awards ceremony.
The Undergraduate Student Research Award is a great way to showcase your talents and achievements in research. It is also an excellent way to gain recognition from your peers and mentors. If you are interested in applying for this award, make sure you start working on your proposal and report early!
- What is the Undergraduate Student Research Award?
The Undergraduate Student Research Award (USRA) is a competitive, merit-based award that supports undergraduate students in their research endeavors. USRA encourages and supports academic excellence by providing funding for students to participate in research under the supervision of a faculty member. USRA also aids in the development of important research skills such as project planning, data analysis, and scientific communication.
- USRA recipients receive a stipend to cover their expenses while conducting research. In addition, they may be eligible for additional funds to support their travel to present their findings at conferences or to conduct fieldwork.
- USRA is open to all undergraduates enrolled at McMaster University who are engaged in research projects with a McMaster faculty member. Projects can be conducted in any discipline, but must have a clearly defined research component. Priority will be given to students who have not previously received USRA funding.
- To apply for USRA, students must submit an application form along with a supporting letter from their supervisor. Applications are reviewed by a committee of faculty members, who evaluate the applications on the basis of academic merit and the potential contribution of the project to the student’s education and development as a researcher.
To be eligible for the Undergraduate Student Research Award, applicants must:
-Be currently enrolled as an undergraduate student at a college or university
-Have completed at least one academic year of study
-Be pursuing research in a STEM field (science, technology, engineering, or mathematics)
