Description

Journeys into Theoretical Physics is a one-week school for outstanding undergraduate students from Latin America in their last year of studies. The school is associated with a partnership between Perimeter Institute (Waterloo, Canada) and  ICTP-SAIFR/IFT-UNESP and the CUNY/Princeton Center for the Physics of Biological Function (Princeton, USA). The best students at the school will be invited to a joint international masters program including one year at ICTP-SAIFR/IFT-UNESP and one year at either the world-famous Perimeter Scholars International (PSI) program in Waterloo or the CUNY/Princeton Center for the Physics of Biological Function in Princeton.

The selection for these international masters fellowships will be through the exam results at the Journeys into Theoretical Physics

Application deadline: April 28, 2019
