Internal Deadline: September 25, 2015 (4:00pm) – This is a firm deadline. We will not accept any applications after this deadline. In addition, incomplete applications will not be considered. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure all supporting documentation has been received by the deadline.
If you are considering applying for a doctoral-level Tri-Council and/or Affiliated Fellowship, please NOTIFY me of your intention by September 7. The LFS Graduate Office will be experiencing some unexpected staffing shortages during September and October. In order to ensure adequate administrative support for this award competition, it will help us a great deal if we know in advance of your intention to apply so that we can set realistic and workable deadlines.
UBC Affiliated Fellowships:
The doctoral Affiliated Fellowship competition runs in concert with the university-adjudicated Tri-Agency (NSERC, and SSHRC) Canada Graduate Scholarships competitions. Students who submit an NSERC or SSHRC Tri-Agency application to their graduate program are automatically considered for open Affiliated Fellowship funding (to be considered for a criteria-based award, please submit https://www.grad.ubc.ca/sites/default/files/materials/awards_affiliated_criteria_based.pdf ). Those applying only for Vanier or CIHR doctoral funding must submit a separate and complete Affiliated Fellowship application in order to be considered.
Updated competition information and application/reference forms are available at: https://www.grad.ubc.ca/awards/affiliated-fellowships
SSHRC and NSERC doctoral Canada Graduate Scholarships (CGSD):
Applicants applying through UBC will either be:
- currently registered at (or were registered at during the year of application), or are on an approved leave of absence from, a degree program at UBC.
- not currently registered at UBC; or are registered, but not in a degree program; and have completed all of the requirements for a degree program from UBC since January 1 of this year
Both agencies have application forms and instructions online. Please see agency websites for further detail:
