Undergraduate Research Opportunities

Undergraduate Research Opportunities enable students to work on research projects, either independently or with a faculty supervisor. The Faculty of Public Affairs offers two specific programs for undergraduate students to gain research experience:

IPAF 4900 – Research Mentorship is a 0.5 credit course that enables you to gain research skills and experience by collaborating with a professor on their research project.

Carleton University Research Opportunity (CUROP) is a summer undergraduate research internship program that enables students to work on a research project of their choosing in collaboration with a faculty member.

Internship-Carleton University Research Experience for Undergraduate Students (I-CUREUS) offers students an opportunity to gain hands-on research experience by working on a faculty-supervised research project. Students can sign up for one term or for both and complete up to 150 hours of paid research.
