Research Excursions Program

The due date for the 2018 Summer Research Excursions Project applications is EXTENDED to Monday Feb. 12, 2018.

The Research Excursions Program provides an opportunity for Arts & Science degree students (St. George) beginning their third year (i.e., after completing at least 9 but not more than 16 credits) to participate in a practical or experiential activity under the supervision of a faculty member. The practical, experiential component can take the form of research/learning in archives, laboratories, libraries, or in a field camp, etc.—but not in a classroom at another university (that is covered by the Faculty’s summer abroad and exchange programs). The projects run within the May-August period, when both Faculty and students would be able to make the time commitments necessary. SUMMER tuition fees apply. The Faculty of Arts & Science will cover travel expenses.

Each 398H0/Y0 has a program-specific designator, such as ANT, CLA, CSB, VIC, etc., and would be eligible to count towards program completion if the program sponsor (Chair or Director) so chooses. A limited number of 398H0/Y0 courses are available each year.

In an effort to provide as many opportunities as possible, priority will be given to those who have not already received funding for a Faculty of Arts & Science international opportunity including 398 REP, ICM, or DFIII – formerly known as DIIF –.

Faculty supervisors propose the projects and choose the students who apply. Students must also attend a mandatory Pre-Departure Orientation through the office of Safety Abroad no later than four weeks prior to travel.
