Student Application Form

Students generally connect with our projects either by enrolling in a course that we already work with (see list below), or by doing an independent for-credit project under the supervision of a faculty member (like a reading course). From time to time, we also have opportunities for paid internships and fellowships.

To apply to undertake an independent community-based research project through the Trent Community Research Centre, please complete the application form below and email it to
