The award is valued at $4500 and will be supplemented with an additional 25% (minimum) from the research supervisor for a total of $5,625.00 or $1,406.25/month.

The duration of the award is 16 consecutive weeks, on a full-time time basis, between May and August 2010.

Upon finding a prospective research supervisor, students should complete, sign and submit Part I of form 202 (online at http://www.nserc-crsng.gc.ca/OnlineServices-ServicesEnLigne/Forms-Formulaires_eng.asp); transcripts will be supplied by the department.
