Awards for All UBC Grad Students

UBC Affiliated Fellowships
The Faculty of Graduate Studies offers approximately 300 UBC Affiliated Fellowships each year to meritorious students for full-time study and/or research leading to a graduate degree. Awards are made on the basis of academic excellence, and are open to currently registered, full-time UBC graduate students regardless of citizenship or visa status. Only the top graduate students with a minimum first class standing (80% or higher at UBC) in each of the last two years of full-time study are nominated. Competition for Affiliated Fellowships is strong each year, and there are always many more nominations than available awards.

Deadline: to the Department, 3rd Monday in September.

Killam Doctoral Fellowships
These are the most prestigious awards available to graduate students at UBC. Approximately 30 awards are made each year to the top doctoral candidates in the Affiliated Fellowships competition. All eligible candidates nominated by their department are automatically considered for Killam Predoctoral Fellowships – students do not need to apply to a separate competition. Please note that students may not hold a Canada Graduate Scholarship–Doctoral (CGSD) award and a Killam Doctoral Fellowship during the same period.
