The Ontario Science Students’ Association and the Foundation for Student Science and Technology Partner to Build Networks of STEM Students, Academics and Professionals

The Ontario Science Students’ Association (OSSA) and the Foundation for Student Science and Technology (FSST) today announce a collaboration to expand each other’s science outreach and help students build professional networks by promoting events and programming.

The OSSA is a student-run organization dedicated to enhancing the university experience for all science students in member institutions (Carleton University, McMaster University, Ryerson University, University of Ottawa, University of Windsor, Western University, Wilfrid Laurier University). The Association aims to build a network between member institutions to share best practices and cultivate essential skills relevant for the members’ academic and professional careers.

“The Foundation is eager to partner with OSSA and collaborate with students from leading universities across Ontario,” said Executive Director of FSST, Peter D’Amico. “OSSA’s activities [are] designed to help students develop skills required for future success [and] are very synergic to FSST’s programs. Together we will reach more students and provide complementary experiences.” The Foundation’s structured programs include the award-winning Journal of Student Science and Technology, the Student Science and Technology Online Research Co-op and more.
