NEW! 2015 Advanced Materials and Biomaterials Interdisciplinary (AMBI) Undergraduate Research Awards

CAMBR is again pleased to announce funding for summer 2015 research awards (at $4500 each + supervisor contribution; 16 weeks of full time placement) at Western on a competitive basis in the form of Advanced Materials and Biomaterials Interdisciplinary (AMBI) Undergraduate Research Awards. 

These will be awarded to Western students working on a collaborative research project offered by a minimum of two CAMBR co-supervisors from two different home departments or two different participating faculties (Engineering, Science, Schulich).  Students must be registered (full time) and be in Years 2 or 3 of their bachelor’s degree at Western in a module/program from participating CAMBR departments. Criteria for selection will be the academic excellence of the student. Some preference may be given to students registered in a Materials Science module. A minimum “B” cumulative average is required.
