PLEASE NOTE THAT STUDENTS MUST COMPLETE THE OSR PRE-APPLICATION TUTORIALS  BEFORE SUBMITTING THE STUDENT FUNDING APPLICATION.

The maximum award is $500 for single researchers, $1000 for two co-researchers and $1500 for three co-researchers.  Research includes creative activities in theatre, music, art and graphic arts and animation, projects in departments in arts and sciences as well as business and education. Students seeking funding for research posters should use OSR’s Poster Printing Service.
