RSM future leaders award

The RSM Future Leaders Award is designed specifically for 2nd and 3rd year full-time students (or second last and last year students in double degree programs). The Award is intended for students who wish to gain an understanding of research processes in the fields of management, marketing and international business. On completion of the one year program, successful candidates will be expected to consider embarking on an Honours degree with the Research School of Management.

The Award will allow students to develop a greater understanding of research practices and processes. A supervisor will be assigned by the School based on the student's and the academic's mutual research interests. Students will gain further insights by attending the Research School of Management Seminar Series and regularly meeting with their supervisor.

The Award is made following a a competitive process based on student grades and application. Students who qualify for this Award will need to have an average of 75% or above in courses they have taken in 1st and 2nd years. Successful students will be awarded $1,000.
