The Graduate Global Leadership Fellowships (GGLF) enable promising leaders from developing countries to pursue doctoral studies at UBC. The fellowships are to support international students showing outstanding leadership in humanitarian and development work in their home country.
Fellows are supported to pursue research and study that will enhance and support contributions already made and which will be of particular use when they return home to apply their new gained skills and/or knowledge. Recipients will be individuals with an appropriate academic background who have established records of contribution to the development of a civil and sustainable society in their home countries through professional, academic, or volunteer work.
The GGLF program has been discontinued.
