Summer Program

Perimeter Institute invites exceptional undergraduate students to join its research community for a fully funded summer school program. Twenty successful applicants will spend two weeks immersed in Perimeter's dynamic research environment -- attending courses on cutting-edge topics in physics, learning new techniques to solve interesting problems, and working on group research projects. There is also opportunity for applicants to be considered for one of ten paid summer research internship. Interns will work on projects alongside Perimeter researchers where they will learn research tools, develop collaboration skills, and potentially even publish their work, all while immersed in the multi-disciplinary environment of the world's largest independent theoretical physics research centre

We accept excellent students with a demonstrated interest in the program, who are entering the final year of their undergraduate program in Fall 2020 (special exceptions allowed).

The two-week summer school is fully funded. Successful candidates will be provided with workspace, accommodations, and weekday meals (per diem are provided for weekends). Perimeter Institute will also cover economy travel expenses between the applicant's home institutions and Toronto Pearson Airport. Ground transportation from Toronto Pearson Airport to Perimeter Institute will be provided.

The two-week summer school is fully funded to ensure that a diverse group of top students, both in background and nationality and without regard for financial means, may attend.

Students staying for the research internship will be paid through a Research Award.
