ESROP – UofT is a student-driven program, with each applicant being required to seek out and secure their own supervisor. Students are welcome to approach faculty members at the University of Toronto, but you may need to be prepared to explain how the program works, as not all faculty may be familiar with ESROP – UofT.

For 2018 there are up to 12 ESROP – UofT fellowships available for students wishing to undertake a full-time summer (May-August) research project. The value of an ESROP – UofT fellowship is $3000. The research supervisor is required to make a contribution equal to or greater than the value of the fellowship.

ESROP – UofT applications are open to all Engineering Science students who are completing their First or Second year of study. Canadian citizens, permanent residents, or visa students may apply. Visa students are required to ensure that they have the necessary permission and documentation from immigration authorities.

Applicants should submit a single application for one (1) research experience.  The Division will not decide between multiple projects/laboratories as part of the application process.  Applicants and their supervisors will be notified of the results of the competition by late-March.

Successful applicants will be required to provide a written report to the Division of Engineering Science at the end of the summer summarizing their research experience in the program.

Any questions about ESROP – UofT may be directed to Scott Sleeth, Engineering Science Curriculum Officer, at
