Graduate Student Career Activation Project (GSCAP)


Applications are currently open for the Graduate Student Career Activation Project, which allows current graduate students (Masters and PhD) to apply for funding to support a career development activity. If any of you are interacting with current graduate students in your roles, please share this opportunity with them—applications will be open until March 1. Students don’t need to complete their activity by that time, just submit a proposal articulating what they plan to do. More details and a link can be found below.


Graduate Student Career Activation Project


The CSIC wants to know how graduate students can activate their careers, and we have funds available to help you try stuff out. Dream big, or dive deep: whether it’s the cost of printing business cards to support your networking, enhancing your French language skills to prepare for a career in the federal government, or paying membership fees to join a professional association, submit a proposal for a career development experience that you believe will get you one step closer to your goals. Each student may apply for funding of any amount up to $1000.


Once you’ve activated, we’ll work with you to develop an appropriate artefact (video interview, blog, etc.) so that your experience can be shared with other UBC graduate students and the university community.


Check out the website for details on how to apply.
