UBC Affiliated Fellowships-Master’s
The UBC Affiliated Fellowships Master’s competition runs in concert with the Canada Graduate Scholarships-Master’s (CGS-M; see below) competition. Approximately 50 fellowship with values ranging from $175 to $16,000 are offered through this competition. Current and prospective full-time UBC-Vancouver graduate students can apply regardless of citizenship or visa status. Students who are eligible for the CGS-M must submit a CGS-M application in order to additionally be considered for Affiliated funding.
Detailed Affiliated Fellowships-Master competition information with links to application and reference forms is available at:
Tri-Agency Canada Graduate Scholarships-Master’s (CGS-M)
Applicants for Tri-Agency CGS-M competition must be domestic students (Canadian citizen or PR) who are applying for or enrolled in graduate studies anywhere in Canada. Each applicant can select up to 3 universities with the same application. To be considered for a CGS-M at UBC, they must select The University of British Columbia as one of the 3 available institutions.

Students who apply for CGS-M awards will automatically be considered for open/un-restricted Affiliated Fellowships. To be considered for criteria-based Affiliated Fellowships, students should fill out and submit to their graduate programs the checklist available at:
UBC Deadlines for the Tri-Agency CGS-M / Affiliated Fellowships Master’s Competitions
Applicant deadline: 5:00 pm PST on Tuesday, 1 December 2020
Graduate program nomination deadline: 4:00 pm PST on Friday, 29 January 2021
- Importance of the application deadline. CGS-M applications cannot be submitted or edited after the application deadline. Late applications will be ruled ineligible. The CGS-M application deadline is set nationally by the CGS-M funding agency and is not flexible.
- Please ask for reference letters early and send the instructions to your referees
- Check early if you have all of the official transcripts for all previous studies (including transfer credits).
- Note that although the SISC academic history document is accepted for UBC CGS-M applications, it may not be accepted by other universities in Canada, so students applying elsewhere in addition to UBC should order official UBC transcripts.
It would help us greatly if applicants used the same email in their CGS-M Research Portal login as in eVision or SIS. This is absolutely not a requirement, but it helps route the applications to correct programs quicker after the application deadline.
