The WISE Blog to Attend a Conference Fund

The WISE Blog to Attend a Conference Fund is a great way to help cover your costs of attending a conference and sharing your experiences with fellow students. The fund will reimburse an amount up to $150 of travel expenses incurred while attending a science or engineering related conference. Blog posts subject matter is of your choosing but post must be approved before posting. Interested students should click on the link to learn more and to fill out an application. Applications are accepted year-round but must be submitted prior to your departure.

If you are interested, the application can be found here: Application for WISE Blog to Attend a Conference Fund

Science, Engineering and Technology Outreach Programs

A major component of CU-WISE's mission involves reaching out to younger students to share our love of science, engineering, and technology. In the process, we hope to be good role models and help these students discover that these topics really are fun and exciting.

Instead of starting our own outreach programs, we decided to offer our support to the many programs already available in the Ottawa area. We hope that our members will volunteer their time to these great initiatives.


We try our best to have this list updated. If you know about an internship opportunity, let us know. Also you could check out prof's websites to find out about their research and show interest to them directly.
