Application Instructions

In order to be considered for admission into the PoND program, a student must first be accepted into graduate studies at one of the host institutions (UVic Chemistry, UVic Physics, UofT Pharmacy, Concordia Chemistry, or Laval Engineering). Therefore, a letter or email from the host department’s graduate secretary or graduate coordinator confirming acceptance or conditional acceptance into graduate studies (or current enrollment in graduate studies in the case of a transferring student) must be submitted with the completed application form.
