REMINDER: Undergraduate Deadline for OISRA Awards is May 14 2015 at 4pm


Are you in the process of selecting undergraduate students to work in your lab for the 2015-2016 academic year?

If your research is oceans-related, your student(s) may be eligible to receive funding from the Research & Development Corporation’s (RDC’s) Ocean Industries Student Research Awards (OISRA).

Students can receive up to $7,500 with additional supervisory funding of $1,500 to support the student’s research costs.

Most undergraduate OISRA awardees have gone on to pursue graduate research at Memorial University.  Some students have even received a second OISRA award at the graduate level.

Undergraduate Award Structure and Level of Support:


Up to $7,500/award for full-time students in their third year of studies or later in a bachelor degree program that are interested in pursuing supervised research in a field related to ocean industries.

Eligibility requirements.

Students must have a minimum average of 75% and be enrolled full-time in the third or fourth year of their program in September 2015. The deadline for students to apply is May 14, 2015 at 4pm.


We’re here to help.

Interested and eligible students may contact RDC’s account managers, Andrew Simmons or Lynette Peddle  for more information.
