Deadline: The position may have been removed or expired!

Applicants must meet all eligibility requirements.

Academic Standing

Students with a minimum first class standing in each of the last two years of full-time study are eligible to apply. GPA is calculated using all courses taken in a given year. For UBC courses, first class standing is 80% and higher. At other universities, first class standing is determined from marking keys that accompany transcripts. For transcripts that are not accompanied by marking keys, applicants should consult with their UBC graduate program staff.


All students regardless of citizenship are eligible to apply. Canadian citizens and permanent residents are required to apply for Canada Graduate Scholarships-Master's (CGS M) (or doctoral funding from CIHR , NSERC , or SSHRC ), if they are eligible to do so.

Fields of Study / program of study

Students in all fields of graduate study may apply. However, students must be enrolled in, have applied for, or will apply for full-time admission to an eligible graduate program. All eligible graduate program must have a significant research component. A significant research component is considered to be original, autonomous research that leads to the completion of a thesis, major research project, dissertation, scholarly publication, performance, recital and/or exhibit that is merit/expert-reviewed at the institutional level as a requirement for completion of the program.

Master’s programs that are based only on course work are typically not eligible since they do not include a significant research component. Several examples are listed (but not limited to) below:

  • Master of Business Administration
  • Master of Management
  • Master of Engineering (in Faculty of Applied Science)
  • Master of Public Policy and Global Affairs
  • Doctor of Pharmacy

Student Status

Applicants who plan to be registered full-time graduate students at UBC's Vancouver campus as of September 2019 are eligible to apply.

Months of Graduate Funding
Master’s-level Funding

To be eligible, applicants must have completed, as of December 31, 2018, between zero and 12 months of full-time (or full-time equivalent) graduate-level studies.

Please note that:

  • all previous studies at the graduate level, regardless of institution and discipline, will be included in determining eligibility*
  • successful applicants for Master's-level funding who plan to hold that funding as a Master's student will not receive funding past the end of their 24th month of Master's-level study.
  • successful applicants for Master's-level funding who plan to hold that funding as a doctoral student will receive a funding offer restricted to a maximum of 12 months, and they will not be considered for doctoral-level funding such as a Killam Doctoral Scholarship.

Students who will have completed more than 12 months of graduate-level studies by December 31, 2018 must apply to the doctoral-level funding competition.

*All previous months of master's will be counted in assessing eligibility, except in cases where the previous master’s study was required by the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies as a basis of admission to the applicant's UBC graduate program. This exception may affect a small number of students from India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, and the Philippines. This exception does not apply in cases where the previous master’s study was required by the applicant’s graduate program, but not by the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies.
