### NSERC Undergraduate Student Research Awards

A summer job for mathematics students!

Each year, a good number of Mathematics majors (either in the Specialization program or the Honours program) can spend their summer studying more mathematics while working on a project under the guidance of a professor and receiving a stipend from NSERC, the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada. The funding from NSERC ($4,500) is usually supplemented by a certain amount paid from the supervisor research grant (about $2,500). NSERC provides that financial support through its program of Undergraduate Student Research Awards.

My field of research is a branch of algebra called Lie Theory: it is named after the mathematician Sophus Lie - pronounced Lee - and you can read an elementary introduction by clicking on the research tab on the left.

Information about the application process can be obtained by clicking on the following link: USRA. The departmental deadline for applying is usually in January or early February.

### Honours Program

If you are interested in the program Bachelor of Science with Honours in Mathematics, you can find information about it at the following web page: Honours in Math program
