*Effective for Fall 2021 and onwards:
Attention Canadian/McGill applicants: We have 2 application deadlines by which Canadian/McGill applicants can submit their applications to the IPN. The initial recommended deadline is January 30, 2021. You must apply by this deadline in order to ensure your best chance of finding a supervisor* and to be considered for a recruitment award.
*You do not necessarily need to secure a supervisor by this deadline, but you must submit your online application form and supporting documents by this deadline.
While you can still apply to the IPN by the final deadline (June 1, 2021), you must understand that our supervisors' labs may no longer be recruiting students at that point, and recruitment awards may no longer be available.
Therefore, while the final deadline for our Canadian/McGill applicants is June 1, 2021 for the Fall 2021 term, it is highly recommended that you submit your applications as early as possible within the application cycle.
Winter 2022 (January)
The application portal for Winter 2022 will open on February 15, 2021. Please note that the following dates are tentative and are subject to change.
