Step 1: Complete All Fields


2019/2020 Visiting Graduate Fellow Program

Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics is offering a valuable opportunity to select advanced international physics graduate students. Visiting Graduate Fellows spend 4-12 months at the Institute participating in all research activities in their specific area of research while also being exposed to other fields of study (String Theory, Quantum Information, Quantum Gravity, Particle Physics, Quantum Foundations, Condensed Matter and Cosmology and Gravitation).

Eligible students (preferably senior PhD students) must be enrolled in a graduate program at a recognized institution. As Perimeter Institute wishes to ensure that the selected students will fully benefit from the program and that it will enhance their current graduate studies, students must be nominated by their current supervisor.

Perimeter Institute's Visiting Graduate Fellows will be provided with shared accommodations, a meal per diem, and economy round trip travel between the Fellow's home institute and Perimeter Institute.
