Passionate about science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM)? Want to build a stronger science culture in Canada?

If so, apply now for an NSERC Student Ambassador grant – worth $1,000. The grant will cover the expenses involved in sharing your enthusiasm for STEM.

To apply, you must be a student over 16 years old, enrolled in a Canadian university, polytechnic, college, or Cégep in the natural sciences and engineering. The grant will help you deliver an outreach activity to promote science and engineering to youth who are under-represented in STEM.

If this opportunity interests you, consider planning your activity to coincide with Science Odyssey, the NSERC-led cross-Canada STEM celebration held in May each year. Science Odyssey will add national visibility to your outreach activity and you will be part of the biggest and best known STEM event in Canada!
