Summer Research Application

Unique to the Department of Chemistry at University of Toronto we offer the Summer Research Program for domestic students registering in September. The experience that a summer research fellow will gain from the program will tend to reduce time to obtain your degree and increase chances of producing publications in the near future. These publications are important for future scholarship applications and prospective career goals.  This will give a summer research fellow a chance to work for any Chemistry faculty member and still have the opportunity to work with a different thesis advisor in September.



Up to $4,500 for three months or $1500/month (full-time hours) in funding is available to start research in the summer before the official start date in September. Incoming students must stay for twelve weeks of the summer (June-August). This is pending university and provincial policy announcements due to COVID-19.  This fellowship cannot be combined with any other source of research funding.

NEW as of May 25 10:48 a.m. - The fellowship will begin on June 15, 2020.


Students must have applied to our graduate program by the early deadline of February 1 and forwarded their School of Graduate Studies Acceptance Form by April 15 to the Chemistry Graduate Office to be eligible to enroll in the program.



To participate in the program, fill out the application as well as the payroll forms.

Forward necessary documents by FAX to 416-978-1631 or email ( by May 15.
