Student Research News

The University of Saskatchewan provides both undergraduate and graduate students with the enriched and distinctive learning experience that comes from being part of a dynamic research community. The Student Research page is focused on celebrating the creativity and initiative of those who are involved in student research, scholarly, and artistic work, and profiling these activities within the campus community, in Saskatoon, and abroad.

On this page you will find student research news, profiles, opportunities for research on campus and abroad, and links to pertinent funding agencies, websites, and information for the student researcher at the U of S. Through the SPARK program there is also an opportunity to get involved in profiling student research on campus. Also visit students.usask.ca for more information on the student experience and the College of Graduate Studies and Research for specific information on research guidelines, scholarships, and awards.

Please let us know what you think of these student-written stories through the "Rate this story" feature at the end of each story.
