- NSERC Undergraduate Student Research Awards (USRA)
Students gain research work experience to complements their studies. Applications are coordinated with the research supervisor (faculty). BCIT’s allocation of USRAs is four (4).
Two forms need to be completed on-line:
- FORM 202 Application for an Undergraduate Student Research Award PART I. Personal Data — To be completed by student, and
- FORM 202 Application for an Undergraduate Student Research Award PART II. Proposed Location of Tenure and Research Project — To be completed by the proposed supervisor.
Student applicants must make sure they are eligible to apply and supervisors must make sure that they are eligible to supervise. Normally, supervisors must hold NSERC funding, however, supervision of faculty members without NSERC funding may be considered. BCIT will then need to obtain prior approval from NSERC by submitting a request. If this case applies to you, please submit the required information to ARLO no later than March.
- CGS M – Canada Graduate Scholarships – Master’s Program
BCIT has a quota of CGS-M Awards. Students submit their application to the institution at which they intend to hold their award using the NSERC Research Portal.
For the 2020 CGSM opportunity, BCIT formed a Selection Committee composed of:
- Anayansi Cohen-Fernandez (School of Construction and the Environment)
- David Holloway (School of Computing and Academic Studies)
- Stefan Joseph (Applied Research Liaison Office)
The members of the selection committee were made aware of and agreed to respect the relevant BCIT and federal government privacy, confidentiality and conflict of interest rules, including:
- Policy 1500 – Code of Conduct
- Policy 1504 – Standards of Conduct and Conflict/Interest
- Policy 6700 – Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy
- Conflict of Interest and Confidentiality Policy of the Federal Research Funding Organizations
- Access to Information Act
- Privacy Act
Each member of the BCIT Selection Committee independently reviewed the CGS-M applications and used the guidelines for Eligibility screening and for the Selection process to evaluate each of the applications received. The results were unanimous and entered into the Research Portal.
- BC Technology Scholarship Fund
The BC Technology Industry Association established the BC Technology Scholarship Fund in 2005. This industry-funded program provides non-repayable grants to students who have a proven passion for technology that are studying in a variety of traditional technical fields such as engineering or computer science and in non-traditional fields such as marketing, sales, and product development and project management.
Applications are accepted in April each year.
