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, worth up to $7,000 each, are awarded each year for students enrolled in Bachelor programs at StFX.  The Internships support full-time employment as a research assistant for a minimum of 12 and a maximum of 16 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).
