Undergraduate Research Awards

If you are an undergraduate student and would like the opportunity to work alongside a faculty member or a Research Assistant Professor at the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC), you should apply for the Undergraduate Research Award (URA) through the USEQIP application

Our faculty members are interested in working with exceptional, motivated students from a wide range of scientific backgrounds. This is a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in an interdisciplinary research community, spanning mathematics, computing science, physics, chemistry, and engineering.

You also get to:

  • Prepare for your graduate studies and research careers
  • Gain a broad exposure to the field of quantum information processing
  • Attend IQC seminars, lectures and student talks

IQC also welcomes final year students interested in doing their undergraduate research projects. Undergraduate Research Awards support full-time research, last a minimum of ten consecutive weeks, and may continue for up to eight months.

Application information

Depending on whether you are an international student or a Canadian student there are different document requirements and award values. Make sure that you read the information that applies to your situation.
