Perimeter Institute opportunities

Each year, Canada's Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics recruits approximately 30 exceptional science graduates for an immersive, 10-month physics boot camp: Perimeter Scholars International (PSI) This unique Master's program seeks not only students with stellar undergraduate physics track records, but also those with diverse backgrounds, collaborative spirit, creativity, and other attributes that will set them apart as future innovators.

Features of the program include:
Fully-funded program - removing financial and/or geographical barriers to entry. Students will be provided with: full tuition, accommodation, meals, living stipend, health insurance, book and materials, necessary IT equipment, and travel supplement.
The PSI program will expose students to the full breadth of theoretical physics in courses taught by world-leading theoretical physicists - Perimeter researchers and visiting scientists.
Collaboration is valued over competition; deep understanding and creativity are valued over rote learning and examination
PSI recruits worldwide: 85 percent of students come from outside of Canada
PSI takes calculated risks, seeking extraordinary talent who may have non-traditional academic backgrounds but have demonstrated exceptional scientific aptitude
