Wall Awards – Apply by Apr 30, 2024

Wall Awards 

Graduate awards, ranging in value from $25,000 (for Master’s students) to $30,000 (for PhD students), have been made available through the Peter Wall Legacy Fund, an endowment established by Peter Wall, for graduate students whose research relates to one of three specific areas of interest:

  • sustainable approaches to and development of the general urban environment, including water, energy and transportation infrastructure in British Columbia;
  • environmental protection of oceans, beaches and waterfronts that impact British Columbia;
  • and sustainable approaches to resource-intensive industry in British Columbia.

Projects within these areas of interest will principally relate to British Columbia, but may also apply to and address other Canadian and international regions.

These awards are intended to support students in their 5th and/or 6th year of their PhD program and to students in their 2nd or 3rd year of their Master’s program. Funding is available for up to 12 months for Master’s awardees, or until program completion, and for up to 24 months for PhD awardees, or until program completion. All awards will commence from September 1, 2024.
