– NSERC has advised that the quota of USRAs for 2012-13 at the University of Windsor is 28. – The value of the scholarship for 2012-2013 is $4500.00 for 16 weeks, with a travel allowance where necessary. – NSERC requires that all students holding USRAs receive supplementary assistance from University sources of at least 25% of the value of the award, that is, of at least $1,125.00. This mandatory supplement is a minimum value; any supplement above this level may be set at the University’s discretion. Research supervisors or programs should therefore indicate clearly what they are prepared to contribute.
A student applying for an award must be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident, and be registered in a bachelor’s degree program at an eligible university. Students must have obtained a cumulative GPA of at least 8.0 or B- up to the time of application. Students may not hold more than three USRAs in their academic career or more than one award in any fiscal year (April 1 to March 31).
