This package shall include:

  • Their most recent academic transcript (unofficial transcripts are permitted), including a list of classes you will complete by CAPSS (if not included in your transcript)

These documents should be sent attached to the same email and respect the following naming convention:

We strongly encourage applicants to submit PDF documents, but will also accept DOCX documents.

Additionally, applicants must arrange for one reference letter to be sent to summerschool@mcdonaldinstitute.ca. Applicants should ensure that their referee specifies the name of the applicant their letter is for. It is highly recommended that the reference letter writer can speak to the applicant’s experience and work ethic in Physics or physical science courses, as well as any possible research experience. The letter writer should not be a fellow student.

You will receive an email confirming receipt of your application, and we will only contact you regarding your reference letter if it has not been received by the deadline, so please inquire if you do not receive a confirmation.

The application period is now closed.

Application packages must be complete and submitted via email to be considered. Late applications will not be accepted. Packages sent by mail will not be accepted. Once submitted, you will not be able to modify your application package. Due to the extended deadline, and the number of applicants, applicants will not be notified about the status of their application until March 29th, 2022.
