Undergraduate Student Program

Perimeter Institute invites exceptional undergraduate students to join its research community for short-term summer research projects, running from June to mid-August. Undergraduate students will work on pre-established projects alongside Postdoctoral Fellows on-location at Perimeter Institute. Students have the rare opportunity to develop their research skills and absorb the rich variety of talks, conferences, and happenings at Perimeter.

In addition to conducting research at one of the world’s pre-eminent centres for theoretical physics, students may also be provided with desk space, IT support, a living allowance, travel costs, and accommodations.

Applicants need only be Physics-majoring Undergraduate students to be eligible for the program. 

Application process for the summer 2018 is closed. Come back on Monday January 14, 2019 to apply for this short-term program.
