Call for Applications: Tri-Agency CGS-M / Affiliated Fellowships (Master’s) – Deadline: December 3, 2018

The Fall 2018 Canada Graduate Scholarships-Master’s (CGS-M) application is available on the Tri-Agency Research Portal (http://www.nserc-crsng.gc.ca/students-etudiants/pg-cs/cgsm-bescm_eng.asp).

The deadline across Canada for applications is 8pm Pacific Standard Time on Monday, 3 December 2018. After this time, the Research Portal will close, and there will be no opportunity to re-open the application. This is the deadline for all application materials, including reference letters. It is the applicant’s responsibility to ensure that their references are submitted on time. Please note that when identifying UBC as your institution, the official name is “The University of British Columbia”.

Instructions for completing a CGS-M application (including transcript requirements) are available online (http://www.nserc-crsng.gc.ca/ResearchPortal-PortailDeRecherche/Instructions-Instructions/CGS_M-BESC_M_eng.asp). Note: Applicants must carefully review the transcript requirements section of the instructions. This is imperative as it is the primary reason for the rejection of applications.

The Fall 2018 Affiliated Fellowships Master’s-level competition runs in parallel to the Tri-Agency CGS-M competition. The Affiliated Fellowships materials for Master’s-level funding have now been posted to the Graduate Awards website: https://www.grad.ubc.ca/awards/affiliated-fellowships-masters-program

The deadline by which Affiliated Fellowship applications for Master’s-level funding must be submitted to the applicant’s UBC graduate program is Monday, 3 December 2018 (same as the deadline for Tri-Agency CGS-M applications). Applications should be submitted as ONE signed pdf to admissions@mech.ubc.ca.
