Research Fellowships – $1500

These awards support students’ independent research endeavours by providing $1500 of funding and free mentorship with a CURL faculty associate at Huron. This funding may be used to allow students to access resources that they may otherwise not have been able to afford (e.g: computer programs, printing costs) and to reduce the need for a part-time job while students complete important scholarly research.

Research projects from all disciplines will be considered, but priority will be given to interdisciplinary projects and/or projects that describe innovative methodology or learning outcomes. Necessary coursework is not eligible for this award, but extension and mobilization of necessary coursework is: please see Eligible Projects for details.

In order to receive a CURL Research Fellowship, both the student applicant and a CURL faculty associate must submit separate applications detailing the same research project, along with its scope and anticipated outcomes.

Eligible Projects

A wide variety of research projects are eligible for fellowship funding consideration. Here are some examples:

  • Research related to a leadership role in community events (e.g: exhibitions, workshops, conferences, etc.)
  • Creation and dissemination of materials for a specific, research-related cause (e.g: websites, brochures, information booklets)
  • Expansion or publication of research-based coursework (e.g: widening the audience of a past research essay by translating it and publishing it online). Please note that the school assignments themselves or other academic requirements are NOT eligible to receive CURL awards.

If you’re unsure whether your project would be eligible, please send a brief summary to CURL@uwo.ca!

Research Fellowship Applications are OPEN for the 2019-2020 school year term until October 1, 2019!
Research Fellowship applications require a faculty mentor. If you do not have a faculty mentor, contact us ASAP with your project idea and we will find you a match!
