Visiting Graduate Fellows

Through the Visiting Graduate Fellowship program, Perimeter Institute offers a unique opportunity for senior international physics PhD students to expand their perspectives and participate in various research activities at Perimeter for 4 to 12 months. Outstanding students will work within their research field, while gaining valuable exposure to other fields of study.

Students applying to the Visiting Graduate Fellow program should be well-advanced in their PhD programs and be ready to function independently in Perimeter's environment. Perimeter Institute wishes for the program to further enhance the student's current graduate studies, so we ask that students are nominated by their PhD supervisor.


Perimeter Institute Visiting Graduate Fellows will be provided with shared accommodations, per diems, and round-trip economy travel between the Fellow's home institution and Perimeter Institute. External sources of funding are welcome, but not necessary.


Applications are being considered on a continuous basis.   Please apply here
