The Internship-Carleton University Research Experience for Undergraduate Students (I-CUREUS) provides funding for undergraduate students to conduct hands-on, faculty-supervised research.

Funded equally by both the Discovery Centre and the faculty supervisor, the I-CUREUS program gives students access to research scholarships, mentoring and hands-on experience in their discipline or an area of interest.
