This section outlines the various opportunities that are offered to Bishop’s University students who wish to get involved in academic research.

See below to learn more about research assistantships, research internships and funding opportunities, obtaining support in the graduate scholarship application process and participating in various research-related events held on campus throughout the year.

Research Assistantships

Undergraduate students at Bishop’s University may have the opportunity to work as research assistants on research projects led by faculty members.

Working as a research assistant provides students with a unique opportunity to discover the world of research early on in their academic careers, and is a helpful stepping stone for moving on to graduate studies and applying for graduate scholarships.

Speak with the faculty members of your program to seek the opportunities!
