Team members may be provided with highly competitive research stipends to carry out their work fully funded (tuition paid plus a living stipend). Our team has also had a successful record of supporting students with additional scholarships. We have had over 85 major scholarships awarded (including 11 NSERC CGS and 9 OGS graduate scholarships) to team members in the last 6 years.

Undergraduate and CO-OP Internships:

We are a strong believer in undergraduate research opportunities and generally hire about 3 undergraduate students annually. Our team has been successfully awarded over 20 NSERC USRA scholarships in the last 5 years.

Distance learning or Part time studies in Canada:

When applying interest make careful attention to how your skill sets and experience relate to the available projects.
