Experiential opportunities for Science undergraduates

Imagine the positive impact we can make if every undergraduate student has the chance to advance real-world scientific research through hands-on learning at Canada’s leading research institution.

The Science Experiential Skills Advantage (SESA) program is a new initiative that enables students to participate in a wider range of work-integrated learning as they complete their degrees. This new initaitive supplements the Faculty of Science's existing internship and hands-on learning programs by enabling more support for undergraduate students that want to bolster their research skills in academic settings — increasing accessibility and creating new opportunitieis as we train the STEM experts and scientists of tomorrow.

If you'd like to support this initiative and inspire scientific breakthroughs, equity and curiosity, please reach out to Liz Hasham, Faculty of Science assistant dean (development), to learn more.
