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.
