Public Scholarship Initiative Information Session – March 2nd, 2018

UBC’s Public Scholars Initiative will soon start accepting applications for its fourth year. A groundbreaking, award-winning scholarship program, PSI currently has 115 scholars from almost all faculties across UBC. Public Scholars enjoy (1) continuous academic support; (2) up to $20,000 financial support over 2 years and; (3) numerous professional development and networking opportunities. 
If your work involves innovative forms of scholarship; engaging communities and other partners for a tangible positive social impact; or more career-relevant forms of scholarship, you may also become a UBC Public Scholar. We would like to invite students, faculty, and staff to join us for the PSI information session to learn more about the initiative, funding criteria and the application process. The session will be on the 2nd of March, from 12:00 to 2:00 at Thea’s Lounge in the Graduate Student Building. Please RSVP here.
The 2018-19 applications for PSI will run from March 19 to May 25, 2018. We strongly encourage all students who plan on applying to attend the information session. More information about the initiative, scholarship holders, and the 2018 competition can be found on the PSI Website.
