LFS Grad Office in January

Happy New Year!  Hope you all had a good rest over the holidays and you’re finding ways to stay warm and dry in this wonderful Vancouver winter wonderland J

I just wanted to give you all a heads-up – this time of the year is a peak-period for undergraduate advising.  In order to be able to manage the number of undergrads who are coming for in, we periodically need to close the main door to Student Services.  If you drop by and the door is closed, please just knock or send Lia or me an email to let us know to expect you.  The advisors will be busy with students until the add/drop deadline in the middle of January.

Thanks, everyone!

Aboriginal Graduate Fellowships

INTERNAL deadline 4:00 pm, Wednesday, January 31, 2018

If you intend on applying for this Fellowship, please inform Lia ( by Wednesday, January 24, 2018

Aboriginal Graduate Fellowships

The University of British Columbia offers multi-year fellowships to Master’s and doctoral Aboriginal students. Award winners are selected on the basis of academic merit through an annual competition, administered by the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies in consultation with the First Nations House of Learning. Approximately a dozen new fellowships are offered each year.

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, AGF recipients are eligible to receive tuition funding. Tuition funding will not exceed the current value of the 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.

All Aboriginal students are eligible to apply, but priority is given to Aboriginal students whose traditional territory falls, at least in part, within Canada. This includes Canadian First Nations, Métis or Inuit students and may include Aboriginal students from Alaska and the northern states of the USA. The University may request further information to confirm Aboriginal eligibility.
