YES Fellowship


YES! Fellowship - back for 2023 - apply now!!

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 Sciences British Columbia.  

The fellowship includes an award of $4,000 and travel and housing allowances to students outside Metro Vancouver (for the TRIUMF placements only). A minimum of two positions between TRIUMF and with a company in the life sciences sector are offered each year.

The intent of the YES Fellowship is to motivate students with a passionate interest in science and engineering to pursue a career in research by offering them the opportunity to experience a real life laboratory environment.
