July 15

NSERC CREATE in Quantum Computing Program Page

Next application deadline is July 15, 2024 for Fall 2024 intake.


  • Current or prospective graduate student at UBC, SFU or UVic
  • Interest in Quantum Computing with supervisor supporting your QC research

This unique training program will equip graduates with skills in both building quantum computing hardware and software.

This program, hosted by the Quantum Matter Institute at the University of British Columbia (UBC), is co-delivered by faculty at three BC universities (UBC, SFU and UVic) with collaboration from leading quantum hardware and software companies.

Students will acquire highly specialized technical expertise and commercial skills in both quantum computing hardware and software through a combination of hands-on workshops, research projects, industrial internships and professional development workshops to ensure job readiness among graduates pursuing careers in the emerging quantum computing technologies sector. Further information on the program can be found below.

This program is not a graduate program by itself. It is meant as “add on” training to a student’s degree program. Every student will have a home department and will take part in the CREATE Quantum Computing Program in addition to their other studies.

Steps to Apply:

  • Ensure you are eligible (a current or prospective Masters or PhD student at UBC, SFU or UVic)
  • Review the Scholar Handbook (see below) to learn more about the program
  • Fill out the Graduate Scholarship Application (see below) and submit with a CV and transcripts to the link provided.
