BC Graduate Scholarship Program (BCGSP) for Canadian Citizens and Permanent Residents

Valued at $17,500.00 each, these awards are available to full-time students who are entering a Master’s or Doctoral program at the University of Northern British Columbia. Scholarships are provided by the Ministry of Post-Secondary Education and Future Skills (the Ministry) as a merit based scholarship to reward student excellence within research-intensive and professional graduate programs.

Eligibility: Students must be in a graduate level program and have completed between 0 - 12 months of studies by September 1st, 2024. Students must be Canadian Citizens or Permanent Residents. Students cannot have previously received a BC Graduate Scholarship or other Entrance Award from UNBC during their program.

Eligible degree programs will include both research-intensive and professional graduate programs, with an emphasis, but not exclusive focus, on disciplines related to Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Mathematics, Entrepreneurship and Design, Indigenous and regional programs. Consideration is based on a Graduate Admission GPA of 3.67 or greater, and an alignment with UNBC's research priorities. Students can only apply once during their degree. Priority will be given to students who have not previously received a UNBC entrance award.

Return completed application and documents to: grad-scholarships@unbc.ca or ADM 1065.

PhD Support Supplement

PhD students that receive a BCGS are eligible to apply for a $10,000 supplement, if they meet eligibility requirements (listed on the application form). Eligible BCGS recipients can apply for the supplement until May 1st, and if funding is available it will be applied in September. If additional funding is available the PhD supplement will be made available to PhD students who did not receive an entrance scholarship at admission.
