An Exceptional Opportunity At The Perimeter Institute

The Perimeter Institute is a real cutting edge center for innovative physics research that I have the greatest respect for as a likely source of world changing breakthroughs. Some readers of my blog may be well suited to the following opportunity (via 4gravitons whose author is employed there):
Perimeter’s PSI program is now accepting applications for 2017. It’s something I wish I knew about when I was an undergrad, for those interested in theoretical physics it can be an enormous jump-start to your career. Here’s their blurb: 
Perimeter Scholars International (PSI) is now accepting applications for Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics’ unique 10-month Master’s program. Features of the program include: 
All student costs (tuition and living) are covered, removing financial and/or geographical barriers to entry.  
Students learn from world-leading theoretical physicists – resident Perimeter researchers and visiting scientists – within the inspiring environment of Perimeter Institute
Collaboration is valued over competition; deep understanding and creativity are valued over rote learning and examination. 
PSI recruits worldwide: 85 percent of students come from outside of Canada. 
PSI takes calculated risks, seeking extraordinary talent who may have non-traditional academic backgrounds but have demonstrated exceptional scientific aptitude. 
Apply online at
Applications are due by February 1, 2017.
