Reimagining funding for Indigenous graduate students


UBC Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies is looking to engage with Indigenous graduate students.

Indigenous graduate students are invited to participate in an engagement session to consider the financial supports for First Nations, Métis and Inuit graduate students at UBC Vancouver and to reimagine the Aboriginal Graduate Fellowship

The engagement sessions are continued from a preliminary round of discussions last year. The end goal is to develop a proposal with options for new funding for Indigenous students.


Who should participate?  

Any Indigenous graduate students from across UBC-V and at any level of study.
