Perimeter Scholars International welcomes applications from exceptional, enthusiastic, interactive students who have obtained an undergraduate degree in physics and/or math with a minimum of three undergraduate or graduate courses in physics beyond Introductory Physics.

Students will be selected on the basis of their potential as researchers in theoretical physics and on academic achievement. PSI intends to recruit a diverse group of students, both in background and nationality, and without regard for financial means. We especially encourage applications from women and other groups traditionally under-represented in physics.

Students being considered for admission into Perimeter Scholars International will be contacted for a short oral interview.


There is no application fee required.


  1. November 1 for early consideration 
  2. Final deadline is February 1

All applicants will be contacted within 14 days after application deadlines. Please do not call or email Perimeter Institute with inquiries on the status of your application.

More information can be found on the FAQ webpage on application requirements.
