B.C. Graduate Scholarship Fund

The $12-million B.C. Graduate Scholarship Fund will help break down barriers for graduate students at 10 public post-secondary institutions offering graduate degree programs, keep the talent pool in B.C., and boost research and economic growth throughout the province.

The fund will be distributed to the following post-secondary institutions:

  • British Columbia Institute of Technology: $75,000
  • Emily Carr University of Art and Design: $75,000
  • Royal Roads University: $180,000
  • Simon Fraser University: $2.25 million
  • Thompson Rivers University: $180,000
  • University of British Columbia: $6 million
  • University of the Fraser Valley: $75,000
  • University of Northern British Columbia: $735,000
  • University of Victoria: $2.25 million
  • Vancouver Island University: $180,000

Funding is based on the size of student population and how many graduate programs are being offered with priority to research-intensive programming.
