Toronto funds student projects in OA or OS

The University of Toronto's Open Source | Open Access project has launched a Student Experience Program. From the web site: 'The Project OS|OA Student Experience Program is an opportunity for University of Toronto students to participate in research projects investigating some aspects of open source and/or open access. The goal is to enrich the student experience by bringing students and faculty together to participate in research and special initiatives that in some way contribute to the production or use of open source software or to scholarly enquiry and debates around open software and open access. Funding awards are available for students to engage in these projects as Student Research Assistants under the direction of faculty sponsors....Visit Summer 2005 Student Experience Projects to see descriptions of projects....Due Date: Proposals for the Fall 2005 competition must be received by September 26, 2005. There will be a second call for proposals in January 2006.'
