The PURE provides financial support to undergraduates to conduct research for eight, 12 or 16 weeks between May and August. The support is for students at any stage of their undergraduate programs, and applications from students in the early stages of their programs are strongly encouraged.
"Undertaking a summer research project can have a significant positive impact on a student's overall experience during their undergraduate studies. It can be an eye-opening experience to become part of the quality research being undertaking at the University of Calgary," says the Chair of the PURE Awards Committee, Dr. William (Bill) Rosehart. "The experiences gained through a PURE award can lead to great future research opportunities, including graduate studies."
