University of Toronto Excellence Awards (UTEA)

The purpose of the University of Toronto Excellence Award (UTEA) program is to provide you with a chance to gain research experience at the undergraduate level in the Natural Sciences & Engineering (NSE), Social Sciences & Humanities (SSH), and Health & Life Sciences (HLS). This program augments the formal research courses offered by the University of Toronto and provides you with opportunities to gain direct research experience on a faculty-led project.

UTEA applications and nominations are coordinated by each divisional research and/or undergraduate office. For more information, visit the University of Toronto Excellence Awards webpage. Questions may be directed to Cheryl Nash.
