Summer program

The goals of the summer program are to expose undergraduate research students to collaborative projects involving techniques of synthesis and functionalization of advanced materials and the characterization of their properties. Interuniversity projects are encouraged.


  • Current enrollment in an undergraduate major.
  • The research project must fit into the scientific program of the QCAM.
  • Excellent academic record.
  • Work on a joint project involving at least two QCAM members for the 16 weeks of internship.
About the summer program

How to submit?

  • Please submit the required documents no later than February 17, 2021 (see the student application for more details).
  • The QCAM scholarship cannot be combined with other major funds, for example, NSERC Summer Scholarships supplemented by the FRQNT.
  • The results will be announced after those of NSERC.
