Undergraduate Summer Research Internships Workshops

Fun fact: In 2021, we handed out 293 Certificates of Completion to the USRI cohort. And some students attended or watched up to 17 different professional development sessions for their own for personal development! Please see below for details related to the 2021 sessions or 2022 sessions.

As part of the USRI program's commitment to help develop students' skills in future research careers, Western Research has partnered with Western Libraries and Student Experience to provide a variety of professional development workshops throughout the summer term.


2024 Professional Development Opportunities

USRI students and supervisors will receive access to a wide range of professional development sessions to support their research work, career development, and gain exposure to new approaches to research dissemination, etc. USRI students receive a certificate of completion once they attend a minimum of four workshops throughout the summer.

All session information and recordings are provided within the USRI OWL site. 

Please note, if you are a supervisor who is overseeing an undergraduate student researcher this summer outside the USRI program and would like them to access these sessions, please email usri_info@groups.uwo.ca for ZOOM details.


Please direct any questions about USRI workshops or suggestions for any additional workshops to Western Research Internal Grants, intgrant@uwo.ca
