cIRcle is an Information Repository (or institutional repository) for published and unpublished materials created by the University of British Columbia.

Calling UBC Vancouver graduate students – enter to win the Open Scholar Award!

UBC graduate students – would you like a chance to win $500? Good news – all you have to do is submit your non-thesis work to cIRcle.

cIRcle is UBC’s online, open access repository for academic work (articles, presentations, coursework, manuscripts, projects and more). The work held in repositories such as cIRcle is publicly available to colleagues, friends and family – not to mention potential employers, graduate schools and the rest of the world.

The GSS cIRcle Open Scholar Award is open to all graduate students at UBC Vancouver. The goal is to feature UBC as a leader in the open dissemination of graduate student work by encouraging Vancouver students to submit non-thesis, course-related projects and manuscripts to cIRcle.

The award, launched in July, is a collaboration between the Graduate Student Society (GSS) at UBC Vancouver and cIRcle. “This opportunity is exactly the kind of thing that I hoped for when I started out as a graduate student,” says Conny Lin, GSS President. “It is an opportunity to be recognized by my peers outside of the normal networks. This is an important initiative both for the collegial spirit it promotes and the way it encourages us to collaborate more openly. We look forward to hearing from you!”

Two winning entries will be randomly selected in early October from all eligible submissions. This lotto-style award will also feature a draw in early April. The twice-yearly draws will continue for the next five years.

Visit the cIRcle website for more information on the award’s eligibility requirements, terms and conditions.
