Aboriginal Graduate Fellowship Bridge Funding

June 16, 2017

The Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies will match funds provided by graduate programs (to a maximum of $8,000 per student and to a maximum of $50,000 for the program in total) to support Master’s and doctoral Aboriginal students registered at the UBC-Vancouver campus for the 2017/18 academic year (i.e., from 1 September 2017 to 31 August 2018). This funding is intended to support students until they can apply for the next regular Aboriginal Graduate Fellowship competition. It is also intended to support students who were not successful in receiving other funding, such as Tri-Agency Master’s or doctoral awards, Affiliated Fellowships, etc., for the 2017/18 academic year. Award winners are selected on the basis of academic merit through a competition administered by the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies.

IRES Deadline: 12pm on Tuesday July 4, 2017.  Please submit complete nominations to Stefanie Ickert and Kyla Hicks.

Annual Value: up to $8,000 from Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies, must be matched by graduate program
