The following message may be of interest to new and returning graduate students:

  • Are you an Education graduate student who is applying to SSHRC/CIHR/Affiliated Fellowship this fall?
  • Would you like to learn how the SSHRC/CIHR/ Affiliated Fellowship process works? 
  • Would you like to receive personalized feedback or advice on your application?

If so, the Office of Graduate Programs and Research (OGPR) is pleased to announce the following event:

Education Graduate Student SSHRC/CIHR/ Affiliated Panel and Feedback Forum
September 11, 2013 11:00 am-1:30 pm
Scarfe, Room 310

This event is designed to give you an opportunity to learn about the SSHRC/CIHR/ Affiliated Fellowship process, or provide you with personal feedback on your application/proposal.

You can either attend a general panel presentation that provides advice on the construction of a SSHRC/CIHR/ Affiliated application (e.g. letters of reference, program of research); or attend a break-out group where you can receive personalized feedback from faculty and students on your application.  Please note that due to time constraints you cannot attend both the panel presentation and receive personalized feedback – therefore, you must indicate which part of the event you are attending on the registration form. 

So please bring either your questions for the panel, or a copy of your proposal (draft copy is fine) if you would like to receive personalized feedback at the session.

Space is limited so please RSVP by 4:00pm Monday, September 9, 2013, using the online registration at the following link:

You must indicate whether you wish to attend the panel or receive feedback.  We cannot guarantee a personalized feedback session to late replies.

Note: If you are unable to attend this information session, you can view videos of the July 2010 as well as the 2009 Information Sessions, and the Perspectives from Successful Students video at the following link:

More than 110 underprivileged students from Africa will get to study at the University of B.C. thanks to a $25 million donation from MasterCard Foundation.

The students will receive comprehensive scholarships to live and learn at the university starting this fall as part of the MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program, according to a news release Thursday from UBC.

B.C. secondary students who wish to become teachers can now apply for one of twenty $5,000 Pathway to Teacher Education scholarships. Scholarship winners will be awarded a $5,000 voucher to redeem upon entrance to one of B.C.’s faculty of education programs.
