Each summer the particle accelerator at UBC offers summer internships to students after grade 12 but before going into the physical sciences or engineering. This year they have expanded the program to include 3 spots at TRIUMF and 3 spots in the community:
The Young Engineers and Scientists (YES!) Fellowship program offers six-week summer research experiences to graduating secondary students in British Columbia entering their first year at a recognized post-secondary institution. The fellowships are located at TRIUMF or at research organizations associated with Life Science British Columbia. The fellowship includes an award of $3,000 and travel and housing allowances to students outside Metro Vancouver (for the TRIUMF placements only). A minimum of three positions at each of TRIUMF and LSBC are offered each year.
The intent of the YES Fellowship is to motivate students with a passionate interest in science to pursue a career in research by offering them the opportunity to experience a real life research environment.
