About CURL

The Centre for Undergraduate Research Learning aims to transform undergraduate learning through experiential learning opportunities that support students in research, academia, and their future careers.

We have four fundamental strategic directions:

1. Enhance student learning with highly engaging, immersive research experiences.

2. Enhance existing faculty research strengths by facilitating engagement and collaboration with students.

3. Enhance faculty teaching by fostering mentorship and sharing of student research learning practices.

4. Facilitate research partnerships with Huron’s external community.

Each school year, CURL awards eight Student Research Fellowships and up to eight Travel Bursaries. Student Research Fellowships occur during the Fall/Winter term from October to April and during the Summer Term from May to August. We also host 2 Conferences (one in November, one in April), facilitate up to 4 student workshops, and award up to 4 grants for student-faculty research collaboration.
