UBC Public Scholars Initiative – March Info Sessions
Are you a doctoral student at UBC interested in integrating broader and more career-relevant forms of scholarship into your doctoral work, and making a tangible positive impact in the world? UBC’s Public Scholars Initiative (PSI) provides academic and financial support (up to $10,000), professional development, and networking opportunities for doctoral students pursuing impactful, collaborative scholarship relevant to a diversity of careers. The PSI is in its second year, and has been profiled in several national publications as an innovative way to support broadened experiences for doctoral students.
On March 1, 2016, we will announce the call for PSI applications for the 2016-7 academic year (deadline: May 15, 2016). We would like to invite students, faculty, and staff to join us in one (or more) of the info sessions to learn more about the initiative, funding criteria and the application process. 2015 PSI scholars will join the sessions to share their experiences.
