Call for Nominations: Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarships

Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarships

The Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarships (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 citizens, permanent residents of Canada, 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 is completed online on ResearchNet:
https://www.researchnet-recherchenet.ca/rnr16/LoginServlet

Application deadline: 12 noon (PDT – Vancouver time) on Thursday, 3 September 2020.
Graduate program nomination deadline: 4:00 pm on Tuesday, 22 September 2020.

Note:

  • Given current uncertainties related to COVID-19 and the difficulty of obtaining/processing paper transcripts, it is recommended that applicants order official transcripts that can be sent electronically from their previous institutions to UBC, rather than by mail, where possible.
  • New requirement for 2020: Vanier requires applicants to submit a Doctoral Studies Timeline form (submitted to the UBC graduate program).  Please see our webpage for more information.

For more information, including eligibility requirements, application procedures, and nomination procedures, please visit our webpage: https://www.grad.ubc.ca/awards/vanier-scholarship

Important note on Equity, Diversity and Inclusion:  The Vanier CGS program encourages equity, diversity and inclusion, as part of the Tri-Agency’s broader commitment to excellence in research and research training in Canada. Resources for applicants, institutions, referees and the selection committees are available at: http://www.vanier.gc.ca/en/equity_diversity_inclusion-equite_diversite_inclusion.html

Applicants are encouraged to review the resources before they begin writing their application.
