UNBC Awards

University of Northern British Columbia awards include bursaries, emergency loans, entrance and other graduate scholarships and awards, research and travel awards.  Some internal awards require individual applications, some are competitive, and some involve departmental nominations.  Not all awards are administered by the Office of Graduate Programs, which deals specifically with merit-based and travel award opportunities.  If the award you’re looking for is not listed below, or for a comprehensive list of graduate scholarships and bursaries, including all needs-based opportunities, please consult the UNBC Awards and Financial Aid website: http://www.unbc.ca/financial-aid.
