Aboriginal Graduate Fellowship Bridge Funding – Deadline: June 15, 2020

Aboriginal Graduate Fellowship Bridge Funding

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 Indigenous students registered at the UBC-Vancouver campus for the 2020/21 academic year (i.e., from 1 September 2020 to 31 August 2021). 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 CGS-Master’s, CIHR/NSERC/SSHRC doctoral awards, or UBC Affiliated Fellowships, etc., for the 2020/21 academic year. Students who already hold significant funding ($16,000/year or greater) will not be considered for AGF Bridge funding.  Award winners are selected on the basis of academic merit through a competition administered by the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies.
