Our graduate students are very successful in obtaining scholarships. The total of awards received this past year exceeded $1.7 million. Most awards require a first class average in each of the past two years of university-level studies. At UBC that would be 80% (or 3.5/4 pt. scale). It is critical that you identify awards for which you're eligible and that you know and meet their deadlines, some of which are in mid-September. Chances of admission are greatly enhanced for students who will hold a fellowship.

Most of the awards come from the:

Natural Science & Engineering Research Council (NSERC)
Social Science & Humanities Research Council (SSHRC)
Canadian Institute of Health Research (CIHR)
UBC Four-Year Fellowship program (4YF)
UBC Affiliated Awards
Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research (MSFHR)

We have provided active links throughout this section where you can obtain information on eligibilities, procedures and deadlines. Be sure to visit the Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies for a more detailed list of awards and financial assistance.
