To develop research skills and assist with student burdens related to financial, family, community and cultural responsibilities, the BC NEIHR supports Indigenous (First Nations, Métis and Inuit) graduate students and postdoctoral fellows by annual competitions for Master’s and Doctoral scholarships and biennial (every two years) for Post-Doctoral fellowships.

Master’s Scholarship Program

The objective of the BC NEIHR Master’s Scholarship program is to help develop research skills and assist in the training of Indigenous (First Nations, Métis or Inuit) Master’s students in British Columbia (BC) institutions, who demonstrate achievement in undergraduate and early graduate studies and partnership potential with Indigenous communities, collectives and organizations.

The BC NEIHR launches an annual competition for Master’s Scholarships valued at $17,500 each. Each year, recipients are invited to a Learning and Sharing Circle (with funded Indigenous communities, collectives and organizations), where they present their work and speak about their participation in this Scholarship program.

Doctoral Scholarship Program

The objective of the BC NEIHR Doctoral Scholarship program is to help develop research skills and assist in the training of Indigenous (First Nations, Métis or Inuit) Doctoral students in British Columbia (BC) institutions, who demonstrate achievement in early graduate studies and partnership potential with Indigenous communities, collectives and organizations.

The BC NEIHR launches an annual competition for Doctoral Scholarships valued at $35,000 each. Each year, recipients are invited to a Learning and Sharing Circle (with funded Indigenous communities, collectives and organizations), where they present their work and speak about their participation in this Scholarship program.

Doctoral Scholarship Renewal Program

The objective of the BC NEIHR Doctoral Scholarship Renewal program is to continue to support the development of research skills and assist in the training of Indigenous (First Nations, Métis or Inuit) doctoral students enrolled in British Columbia (BC) institutions. This scholarship program is for students who: previously received a BC NEIHR Doctoral Scholarship; continue to demonstrate achievement in graduate studies; and show partnership potential with Indigenous communities, collectives and organizations.

Postdoctoral Fellowship Program

The objective of the BC NEIHR Postdoctoral Fellowships program is to provide funding to Indigenous (First Nations, Métis or Inuit) postdoctoral applicants who wish to conduct research within a British Columbia (BC) host institution. Recipients of these fellowships demonstrate achievement in graduate studies, a research-intensive career pathway, as well as partnership potential with Indigenous communities, collectives and/or organizations.

The BC NEIHR launches a competition for Postdoctoral Fellowship(s) every two (2) years. Should more funds become available, additional fellowships may be awarded. Recipients are invited to a Learning and Sharing Circle (with funded Indigenous graduate students as well as communities, collectives and organizations), where they present their work and speak about their participation in this Fellowship program.
