Program for Undergraduate Research Experience (PURE) Awards
PURE Awards website

While research opportunities are available through students' course work, the university believes that qualified students should also have the opportunity to experience research as an activity outside the classroom. Especially important are opportunities which provide extensive periods of time to focus on research projects of interest to the student and which fit into existing research activities in the University.

Undergraduate students planning to pursue graduate studies should have opportunities to learn how to write research proposals, seek research funding, undertake or participate in substantive projects, learn discipline-specific skills, and report research results.

PURE awards are meant to benefit students at any stage of their undergraduate program, and applications from students in the early stages of their program are strongly encouraged.


NSERC Undergraduate Student Research Awards
NSERC website
These awards are meant to stimulate your interest in research in the natural sciences and engineering. They are also meant to encourage you to undertake graduate studies and pursue a research career in these fields.

FEES AND FINANCIAL AID
Undergraduate Student Fees
Fees Office website
Student fees are assessed on a per-term basis and include: tuition, faculty specific assessments, athletic and recreation assessments, U Pass (transit pass), student health and dental plan, mandatory course fees and, in some cases, a donation.

The university does not mail out invoices, receipts or statements of student accounts. Full details of your student financial account are available to you through your Online Student Centre.

Financial Aid
Student Loans website
Both the federal and provincial government provide student loans for post-secondary study. Students must be Canadian citizens or permanent residents and need to apply through the province that considers them a resident. Government student loans are intended to be supplemental to student and family resources, and are awarded based on financial need.

Loans and bursaries are available for both full and part-time studies at the post-secondary level. Some grants are available to special needs groups such as single parents, students with disabilities, students with dependents and part-time students with high financial need.

For more information about awards, scholarships or financing options contact the Student Awards and Financial Aid office at the University of Calgary.
