In the case of many awards to support undergraduate or graduate research, firm deadlines are set by the external agency that provides the funding. In such cases it may not be possible to change internal deadlines. However in the event of a strike, the University will consider possible adjustments to the internal deadlines for applications for student research awards and may make adjustments where appropriate. Any such change to deadlines will be posted on this website.
Please note that both the deadline for receipt of NSERC USRA applications and receipt of StFX Summer Research Internship Awards by the Office of the Associate Vice-President Research have been extended to February 18th, 2013.
Please note that the NSERC USRA applications must be completed on-line. Complete applications that have been electronically submitted by the proposed supervisor by the February 18th deadline will be considered to have met the deadline. An official transcript is required for these applications. Both sides of the transcript should be uploaded (preferably) as black and white copy. The official transcript should also be sent/delivered to the Office of the Associate Vice-President Research.
StFX Summer Research Internship applications should be submitted in hardcopy to the Office of the Associate VPR by the February 18th deadline. Please note that a copy of the student grade report (not the official transcript) are required for these applications.
