Âhkameyihtamowin: We Rise, Mapping Indigenous Assurgency Across Turtle Island
The Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies will match funds provided by graduate programs (to a maximum of $8,000 per student and to a maximum of $50,000 for the program in total) to support Master’s and doctoral Indigenous students registered at the UBC-Vancouver campus for the 2019/20 academic year (i.e., from 1 September 2019 to 31 August 2020). This funding is intended to support students until they can apply for the next regular Aboriginal Graduate Fellowship competition. It is also intended to support students who were not successful in receiving other funding, such as Tri-Agency Master's or doctoral awards, Affiliated Fellowships, etc., for the 2019/20 academic year. Award winners are selected on the basis of academic merit through a competition administered by the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies.
Academic excellence (applicants for Master's funding - 33.3%; applicants for doctoral funding - 20%)
Research ability or potential (applicants for Master's funding - 33.3%; applicants for doctoral funding - 50%)
Communication, interpersonal and leadership abilities (applicants for Master's funding - 33.3%; applicants for doctoral funding - 30%)
Applicants must check with their graduate program regarding their program’s internal nomination procedures and deadline. Internal application deadlines are normally several weeks before the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies deadline, as graduate programs must review students' applications well in advance of the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies deadline.
Applicants who were previously nominated for the regular Aboriginal Graduate Fellowship competition in February 2019 do not need to re-submit application materials, but do need to confirm with their graduate program that they would like to be considered for the Aboriginal Graduate Fellowship Bridge Funding.
New applicants must submit the following materials to their graduate program at UBC:
Graduate programs are to:
The Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies will convene an adjudication committee made up of UBC faculty members, which will review the applications and select the successful applicants.
The Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies will notify graduate programs of the competition results for their applicants.
