I'm from Canada, and this is one of the big awards you can get for the summer. Great for experience. http://www.nserc.gc.ca/sf_e.asp?nav=sfnav&lbi=1_toc Does anybody know if it is possible to get an award to do research in Pure Mathematics? I'm going to talk to my professor about this tomorrow. I wouldn't mind changing the topic a little to fit the criteria of the award. It would certainly be a great experience. Thanks!
