Research project proposals will be anonymized upon receipt and blind-reviewed by a College faculty member.  Interested students should send an application by email in word format with the following information to the College Undergraduate Administrator Andrea (andrea.mcintyre@carleton.ca):

  1. Resume with student number and year/program indicated.

A statement of support from College faculty member who is willing to supervise the project is also required, and may be sent separately. At the end of the internship the awardee is expected to submit a brief summary of research in early September that may be posted on the College website.
