University of Toronto Excellence Award

The UTEA program is funded by the Vice-President Research & Innovation and provides eligible undergraduate students with opportunities to conduct summer research projects under the supervision of eligible U of T faculty members.

If you are not eligible to apply for an NSERC USRA because you are an international student, you can apply for a UTEA. It is your responsibility to find an eligible EEB Faculty member to supervise you. Please note that students who apply for the NSERC USRA are automatically eligible for the UTEA.

Award Value: $4,875 with a supplement of $1,125 for a total value of $6000
Duration: 14 weeks in the summer term (between May 1 and September 30)
