  • Prize Scholarships for Summer Research

    Quantum Information and Quantum Control are exciting areas of 
    cross-disciplinary scientific research, which aim to exploit  
    fundamentally quantum mechanical phenomena for important technological  
    applications in communications, computing, laser control of molecular  
    processes and metrology.


    The Center for Quantum Information and Quantum Control (CQIQC),  
    located at the University of Toronto, is accepting applications for  
    Prize Scholarships for Undergraduate Students to undertake Summer  
    Research Projects at the University of Toronto in 2015. CQIQC will  
    provide funds for students to spend the summer working in one of the  
    research groups associated with the Center.
