Irving Research Mentorship awards offer StFX undergraduate students the opportunity to be involved in the creation of new knowledge and creative use of existing knowledge through original research carried out under the supervision of a faculty mentor.  Funding to support student researchers is provided through the McKenna Centre for Leadership with an endowment established by Irving Oil. Normally a minimum of six undergraduate student Summer Research Internships are awarded each year for students enrolled in Bachelor programs at StFX. The Internships support full-time employment for students to carry out their own research projects under the supervision and mentorship of full time faculty members and are worth $8,000 each (which includes applicable benefits and vacation pay) over 14 weeks during the summer (May-August) period.

Applicants submit using the ROMEO Researcher Portal, with a deadline of NOON February 7 (when this date falls on a weekend or holiday, applications are due at NOON the next business day). Please visit the Research Opportunities for Undergraduate Students page for more details and instructions.
