CINP Undergraduate Research Scholarships

The CINP is pleased to announce the 2020 Undergraduate Research Scholarships program, to enable gifted undergraduates to work with a supervisor on nuclear physics research this summer.


The program is open to any Physics or Engineering Physics major enrolled in a Bachelor of Science or Applied Science program at a Canadian university.  Students must not hold any higher degrees in the natural sciences or engineering.  The research supervisor must be an NSERC-eligible member of the CINP, but does not have to be employed by the institution where the research will be performed.

Duration and Value

The duration of the scholarship is 16 weeks on a full-time basis.  The scholarship consists of a $5000 stipend, which must be supplemented with other funds by at least $4000 (to a total of not less than $9000).

In addition, if the supervisor intends to send the student to a laboratory or work with a second collaborator for an extended period in the summer, the CINP is willing to contribute up to an additional $1300 to help cover transportation and lodging expenses.

Application Procedure

The student and prospective supervisor must jointly apply for the scholarship.  Further information, including the application form, is available at the CINP website, http://cinp.ca/node/179

The final deadline for receipt of all application materials is end of business, Monday, March 2.
