Waterloo Unlimited: Roadmap to Research

The University of Waterloo’s “Roadmap to Research” provides Grade 12 students with an introduction to the “art and science” of reading academic papers and an opportunity to explore cutting-edge discoveries with professors from different departments on campus. Small-group seminars and hands-on workshops make this a highly interactive program; there will be many chances to engage with current undergraduate and graduate student researchers.

The program runs from Wednesday, November 18 to Friday, November 20. Applications are available here and the deadline is Wednesday, October 7. The $300 cost includes meals; supervised accommodation can be arranged at an extra charge. There is limited bursary support for those demonstrating financial need.
