Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions (PICS)

PICS is a dynamic knowledge network that brings together leading researchers from British Columbia (BC) and around the world to study the impacts of climate change and to develop positive approaches to mitigation and adaptation.  PICS pulls together the intellectual capital of the province in applying a multi-disciplinary approach to climate change research. PICS supports research endeavours that focus on solutions and relevance to BC.

Graduate Fellowships are available on an annual basis to outstanding Masters and PhD students at the Institute’s four collaborating universities: University of British Columbia, University of Northern British Columbia, Simon Fraser University, and the University of Victoria. Students must be conducting research in an area related to climate change impacts and adaptation. Fellowships are valued at $12,000 per year for Masters and $18,000 per year for PhD students.

Please see the PICS website for additional details on the program and how to apply.
