      Required Documentation

      To apply to the Summer Student Program, you will need to submit:

      • The MBP Summer Student online application form.
        • All undergraduate transcripts from all institutions attended. Unofficial transcripts are acceptable for the online application. Students who are hired will be asked to send hard copies of their official transcripts to the MBP office.
        • Two online references.

      Please read the following information carefully before proceeding with your application

      • You are required to provide 2 references - applications with less than two references will be considered incomplete and will not be accessible to faculty.
      • References should indicate how long the person has known you and in what capacity. Your referees will be asked to submit the reference online; they will receive an e-mail request once you have provided their information.
      • Your referees should meet the following criteria:
        • have a valid e-mail address
        • be familiar with your research-related work and can comment in detail on your potential research abilities. (Examples of appropriate referees are: former and current research supervisor, university professor, university lab instructor, former/current employer in a research-related industry)

      How do I apply?

      • Applications are completed through our Summer Student Application Portal. We are not accepting new applications at this time. The portal will open again in late Fall 2024. 
      • Before signing into the application portal for the first time, you must create an account.

      Some tips to help with your application

      • Your application will be automatically saved as you submit the information. You can make modifications to submitted information until the application deadline.
      • Incomplete applications will not be accessible to our faculty members.
      • Your grades can be entered in the format used on your transcript (e.g.: 4-point scale, letter grade, percentage, etc.)
      • Once a faculty member makes an offer of hire, the student is required to provide their official transcript to Daphne Sears at the MBP office for verification.
