ESROP – U of T 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. Be prepared to explain how the program works, as not all U of T faculty will be familiar with it.

For 2020 there are up to 12 ESROP – U of T fellowships available for students wishing to undertake a full-time summer (May-August) research project. The value of an ESROP – U of T fellowship is $3000, with the research supervisor being required to make a contribution equal to or greater than the value of the fellowship.

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 are limited to one (1) application.  The Division will not decide between multiple projects/laboratories as part of the application process.

Successful applicants and their supervisors will be notified of the results of the competition by late-March. At the end of the summer, participants will be required to provide a written report to the Division of Engineering Science summarizing their research experience in the program.

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