There is an opportunity for UBC undergraduate students to apply to The 2015 Undergraduate Research Awards, an international competition based in Ireland whose aim is to celebrate and support the world’s brightest and most innovative undergraduate students, by enabling them to present their best coursework and projects. Last year, UA received 94 entries from UBC students (out of a total 5000 entries from 27 countries). UBC had one winner and six shortlisted students.
This year’s submission deadline is May 29, 2015.
UBC students can learn more by visiting the UBC Student Services website at http://students.ubc.ca/fun/give-back/student-funding-awards or the Undergraduate Awards website directly at http://www.undergraduateawards.com/.

There is also an opportunity for faculty members to serve as judges in the competition. This voluntary process takes place in July/August; more information can be found at http://www.undergraduateawards.com/ and those interested in joining a judges’ panel this year can register here.
