Undergraduate Student Program

Perimeter Institute invites exceptional undergraduate students to join its research community for short-term summer research projects, running from May 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 desk space, IT support, living allowances, travel costs, and accommodation, if applicable.


Please note that the deadline for 2015 has now passed. 

If you wish to apply to the Summer Undergraduate program please provide us with your:

  • Curriculum Vita
