UBC Public Scholars Award

This award is part of the UBC Public Scholars Initiative intended to build connections, community, and capacity for PhD students who are interested in explicitly linking their doctoral work to an arena of public benefit and integrating broader and more career-relevant forms of scholarship into their doctoral education process.

Up to $10,000 per student is available to support innovative dissertation scholarship which the student would otherwise be unable to pursue.  Funding can be used for:
  • Student stipend, if the student’s current funding source would not allow the alternative project(s)
  • A research allowance
  • An allowance for professional development relevant to the scholarly work
  • A travel allowance for collaborative work

Funding is available for up to 50 students in 2015-16.  Students may be eligible for renewal for a second year.

Deadline Friday, 15 May 2015
Annual Value Up to $10,000

PhD students in years 1-5 (for both initial and second year of funding, if applicable).
