Projects

Note that students are encouraged to seek out a potential supervisor directly and not only apply to projects posted on the FoM SSRP website. Over 85% of FoM SSRP projects result from students and supervisor connecting via other methods, and thus are never posted on the website. The Find a Supervisor page will be of assistance to students looking to connect with a potential supervisor directly.

Please only contact supervisors if you are eligible to apply for the SSRP (see eligibility requirements). Only current UBC students are eligible to apply.

Projects are posted in the order in which they are received. New projects will be added as they are received (newest at top) with the posting date noted in square brackets.

Deadline: February 15, 2023 [4:00 pm]
