Scholarships and Awards

UTSC Undergraduate Reseach Poster Forum and UTSC Library Undergraduate Research Prize

The UTSC Library and the Office of the Vice-Principal Research are initiating an Undergraduate Research Forum and an Undergraduate Research Prize as an opportunity for students to share their recent research experiences with the academic community, promote more undergraduate research, and foster undergraduate scholarship excellence at UTSC.

The Undergraduate Research Forum allows students to communicate their research goals and outcomes to an academic community through the form of a poster presentation. The Undergraduate Research Prize allows students to reflect on their research experiences and the process of accumulating their research (use of the library and academic resources). Both opportunities are competitive and judged programs, which promote the spread of knowledge as well as the acknowledgement of student efforts (cash prizes, acknowledgement of participation on Co-Curricular Record, etc).
