About the URE awards
Each year, the UFV Research Office presents Undergraduate Research Excellence (URE) Awards to students who have conducted high-calibre research as part of the UFV Work Study program, as research assistants, or for an outstanding project as part of a course.
Departments/Schools are invited to submit nominations for their best research student for projects done in the past year.
Additional awards are available for the best:
- Community Service Research project completed by a student with a community service agency
- Indigenous Research project completed by a student on an Indigenous related topic, or research done by an Indigenous student
- Industry Engagement Research project completed by a student with a UFV industry partner
A celebration event is held in Spring to acknowledge the students and their research supervisors. The event is traditionally an in-person dinner (see photos). Recipients of the 2021 awards are celebrated in a special video!
