Competition Announcement: Affiliated Fellowships-Master’s and CGS-M Competitions

UBC Affiliated Fellowships-Master’s

The UBC Affiliated Fellowships Master’s competition runs in concert with the Canada Graduate Scholarships-Master’s (CGS-M) competition. Approximately 50 fellowships with values ranging from $175 to $16,000 are offered through this competition. Current and prospective full-time UBC-Vancouver graduate students can apply. Students who are eligible for the CGS-M must submit a CGS-M application in order to additionally be considered for Affiliated funding.

Applicants for the Tri-Agency CGS-M competition must be domestic students (Canadian citizens or Permanent Residents) who are applying for or enrolled in graduate studies anywhere in Canada. Each applicant can select up to 3 universities with the same application. To be considered for a CGS-M at UBC, they must select The University of British Columbia as one of the 3 available institutions.

Students who apply for CGS-M awards will automatically be considered for open/un-restricted Affiliated Fellowships.
