Jamie Cassels Undergraduate Research Awards (JCURA)
The Jamie Cassels Undergraduate Research Award (JCURA) was instituted in 2009-10 as the Undergraduate Research Scholarship program by the Vice-President Academic and Provost. It is designed to provide support for exceptional undergraduate students who might otherwise not be able to obtain a direct research experience as a part of what we anticipate should be a truly formative learning experience. The Learning and Teaching Centre (LTC) administers the award nomination process on behalf of the Provost’s Office.
Eligible students include all full-time 3rd and 4th year undergraduate students (normally registered in 12 or more units of study in the Winter Session) in excellent academic standing (normally this is a minimum GPA requirement of 7.0). Award recipients will undertake a research investigation in dialogue with, and under the mentorship of, a faculty supervisor. Each academic unit is eligible for 1, 2 or 3 student nominations per year depending on the number of students in the unit. Please click here for your unit’s specific eligibility. Each successful student receives $1,500 credited directly in their UVic account.
