Funding Your Graduate Education as an Aboriginal Student

Funding Your Graduate Education as an Aboriginal Student

UBC has several scholarships and other funding opportunities specifically for Aboriginal graduate students, including the Aboriginal Graduate Fellowship and the Aboriginal Graduate Fellowship Bridge Funding. Identifying yourself as Aboriginal in your application will automatically make you eligible for some funding opportunities. This funding is not guaranteed, but your graduate program will consider you for these opportunities and possibly nominate you for specific scholarships.

Additional information on Aboriginal financial aid and awards can be found at the First Nations House of Learning and on the Aboriginal Awards page of the Student Services website.

There are also many other funding opportunities that are available broadly to graduate students, including teaching assistantships, research assistantships, federal grants, and scholarships. Visit the Scholarships, Awards and Funding section of this website for awards and funding information specific to graduate students.
