The Ocean Industries Student Research Awards (OISRA) are designed for undergraduate and graduate students in Canada and around the world who are interested in pursuing ocean industries-related studies and research in Newfoundland and Labrador at Memorial University, the Marine Institute, or the College of the North Atlantic.

Relevant fields of study include areas such as offshore petroleum engineering, geoscience, ocean engineering, ocean technology including marine transport, fisheries, aquaculture, and other areas such as marine science that support R&D, innovation and the commercialization of ocean technologies.

The goal is to attract, develop and retain world class researchers, while investing in the highly-qualified personnel required by industry and the next generation of R&D leaders.
