Since 2002, the Markin USRP has provided undergraduate students the unique opportunity to work alongside leading university researchers early in their post-secondary education. The primary goal of the program is to enrich and enhance the undergraduate experience at the University of Calgary.

Learn more about the Markin USRP application process and become a faculty mentor. Graeme Bell USRP Travel Awards are also available for students who have conducted health and wellness research as a University of Calgary undergraduate through any funding program or via coursework, and who have presented their research at a conference. Travel can be provincial, national or international.

Application forms for both programs are available online and are being accepted for summer undergraduate research funding until Feb. 15.
