Awards & Summer Jobs

Chemistry students are eligible for a number of awards. Some are specific to our courses and programs, others are applicable to all Queen's students. The Undergraduate Awards link will guide you to descriptions of these awards. Full award details are listed on the Registrar's Office site.

Summer employment in chemistry offers a unique introduction to research. Spend your days working on the frontiers of knowledge and acquire valuable skills at the same time. Each year roughly 30 undergraduate students join our department for the summer months. Many of these hold NSERC USRAs, others hold SWEP awards, and some are directly funded by faculty. The Summer Employment link provides information on NSERC USRAs and SWEP application procedures.

A number of industry-based summer employment opportunities are available. Exchange programs are also available. Consult the Summer Employment link for more details.
