Ontario Genomics Institute's 2013 Summer Research Fellowship

The Ontario Genomics Institute (OGI) Summer Research Fellowships in Genomics, Proteomics, Bioinformatics or related ethics and policy research are available to undergraduate students again in 2013.  The deadline for applications is March 4, 2013.

OGI Summer Research Fellowships offer undergraduate students studying at Ontario universities unique opportunities to engage in meaningful, real-life research in the areas of genomics, proteomics, bioinformatics or related ethical, economic, environmental, legal or social issues (“GE3LS”).  Under the direction of a supervisor in academia or industry*, Fellows will conduct research in one of these areas in a laboratory or other appropriate academic or industrial setting. *OGI will provide assistance with finding a supervisor for anyone interested in applying for an industrial fellowship.

These Fellowships not only provide students with the opportunity to gain research experience, but also include a mandatory orientation session at OGI, participation in biweekly information sessions via web conferencing, and an opportunity to present their summers’ work by way of PowerPoint and poster presentations to their supervisors, OGI staff and special guests at a final meeting in August 2013.

The value of the 2013 Summer Research Fellowship is $5,000.  A travel allowance will also be available to students and supervisors located outside the Greater Toronto Area to offset the costs of attending OGI Summer Research Fellowship events in Toronto.  Please note:  Recipient may hold only one Summer Research Fellowship award.

Ontario universities, institutions and/or companies are strongly encouraged to support these outstanding students by supplementing the amount of the award using other sources.  Universities may also provide fringe benefits, such as vacation, medical insurance, etc.

Information and application forms are available online at:

Enrollment caps have been restored for CS courses

As per the course selection policy, enrollment caps for all CS courses have been returned to their actual class size. If the class or section is full then it means that you will need to wait for another student to drop it. You have until 11.59 p.m. on Monday May 14 to add courses.

The following courses still have waiting lists and department consent applied so you will NOT be able to add these courses.

Course enrollment for Spring 2018

Appointments for course enrollment began on Monday 26 March and open enrollment begins on Wednesday 28 March.

For students trying to add CS courses, we encourage you to review the course selection page.

In Computer Science,  we drop the enrolment caps by approximately 15% of the total enrolment number for the course to give advisors room to handle special cases. We will return the enrolment caps to their actual size in the second week of classes after we have had time to deal with the special cases. This will occur on Friday, May 4, 2018, (we don't know the precise time) and remaining space will be available on a first-come-first-served basis only if the section isn't already at its enrolment total. WHAT IS A SPECIAL CASE?
