You will get the opportunity to interact with students from around world, work with graduate students, postdocs and IQC faculty. This program is fully funded – including your accommodations and food. You can also apply for travel bursaries.
Watch this quick video to get a feel for the full experience.

Undergraduate Research Award – all summer
Join us at IQC for the summer through an Undergraduate Research Award and work with one of our researchers – experimentalist or theorist. Not only will you enhance your research experience and prepare for your graduate studies and research career, but you get the chance to attend IQC seminars, lectures, and student talks. This is a unique opportunity to interact with an interdisciplinary research community.

Apply before January 15!
You can choose to only apply to attend USEQIP, to only apply for an Undergraduate Research Award, or apply for both.

  • If you want to apply to both, click the USEQIP button. Complete the application and check the appropriate box for the Undergraduate Research Award.*
  • If you only want to apply for USEQIP, click the USEQIP button. Complete the application but do NOT check the box for the Undergraduate Research Award.
  • If you only want to apply for the Undergraduate Research Award, click the URA button and complete the application.

*In the event that you are not invited to USEQIP, you will still be considered for an Undergraduate Research Award as we have more URA opportunities than spots in USEQIP.
