Scholarships, Awards and Funding

The University of British Columbia offers and administers many programs that provide financial help to graduate students.

The Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies is responsible for merit-based graduate awards at the Vancouver campus of the University of British Columbia. Graduate Awards manages a number of award competitions each year and administers payment of both internally- and externally-funded awards.

Graduate students at UBC's Vancouver campus who have questions about need-based funding should visit the Enrolment Services website.

Graduate students at UBC's Okanagan campus who have questions about merit-based or need-based funding should visit the UBC Okanagan website.

Fall 2013 - Many students will find answers to their questions in the Awards FAQ.
