Internal Deadline: Friday September 23rd, 2016 (4:00pm) – This is a firm deadline. We will not accept any applications (missing documents) 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 UBC Affiliated Fellowships doctoral competition runs in concert with the university-adjudicated NSERC and SSHRC CGS doctoral competitions. Students who submit an NSERC or SSHRC application to their graduate program are eligible for open Affiliated Fellowships and do not need to submit a separate Affiliated Fellowships application. (To be considered for criteria-based affiliated fellowship(s), students should submit this checklist (https://www.grad.ubc.ca/sites/default/files/awards/awards_affiliated_criteria_based_2016-08-24.pdf) with their NSERC or SSHRC application to their graduate program.) Those applying only for Vanier CGS or CIHR Doctoral Research Award must submit a separate and complete Affiliated Fellowships application in order to be considered.
Updated competition information and application/reference forms are available at: https://www.grad.ubc.ca/awards/affiliated-fellowships
