Competition Announcement: Indigenous Graduate Fellowships

The University of British Columbia offers multi-year fellowships to master’s and doctoral Indigenous students. Award winners are selected on the basis of academic merit through an annual competition administered by the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies.

Each fellowship provides a stipend of $18,200 per year for doctoral students or a stipend of $16,175 per year for master’s students. Additionally, IGF recipients are eligible to receive tuition funding. Tuition funding will not exceed the current value of standard doctoral or master’s degree tuition fees. Applicants for Master’s funding will receive fellowship funding until the end of their second year of master’s studies; applicants for doctoral funding will receive fellowship funding for four years or until the end of their fifth year of doctoral studies, whichever comes first.  In all cases, continued fellowship support is conditional on satisfactory academic progress. Recipients of master’s fellowship funding must re-apply to be considered for doctoral funding.

Applicants must submit their application materials to their graduate program at UBC by the deadline of February 16, 2024, at 4:00 PT. Application materials submitted directly to the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies will not be accepted.
