Call for Nominations: Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarships
The Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarships (Vanier CGS) program is designed to attract and retain world-class doctoral students by supporting students who demonstrate both leadership skills and a high standard of scholarly achievement in graduate studies in the social sciences and humanities, natural sciences and engineering, and health-related fields. Canadian and international students are eligible to be nominated for a Vanier Scholarship, which is valued at $50,000 per year for up to three years.
The application form is completed online on ResearchNet (www.researchnet-recherchenet.ca).
The deadline for applicants to submit applications on ResearchNet is 11:59 pm (PDT – Vancouver time) on Thursday, 7 September 2017.
The deadline for graduate programs to submit nominations to the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies is 4:00 pm on Tuesday, 26 September 2017.
For full details, please see our website at www.grad.ubc.ca/awards/vanier-scholarship.
Important notes regarding student mobility:
· Vanier scholars are encouraged to continuously broaden their research horizons and seek new challenges. For this reason, Vanier CGS candidates are strongly encouraged to pursue their studies at a university other than that (or those) which granted their undergraduate and graduate degrees. Candidates who are nominated by a university at which they have completed a previous degree must provide a strong and compelling rationale, in the Special Circumstances section of the application, as to why they have chosen to undertake their PhD at the same university.
· Though the majority of UBC’s Vanier nominees will have a previous affiliation with UBC, we strongly encourage faculty members to identify and consider prospective students from universities beyond UBC.
