Research Opportunity Program


The ROP299Y offers committed and enthusiastic students the chance to undertake exciting projects in research laboratories. We select the students who will learn research methods and share in the excitement and discovery of acquiring new knowledge while working with us; at the same time they earn 1.0 FCE course credit towards their degree and program requirements. Working on a closely supervised research project provides the second year students with a beneficial experience that will have a significant impact on their future learning at the undergraduate level and beyond. In return, we benefit from the work of young, engaged researchers-in-the making.

We ask that all eligible students submit their applications as per the directions on the ROP website, through Deborah Shaw (, the coordinator of Undergraduate Teaching and Learning of the Faculty of Arts and Science.
