The University of Northern British Columbia (UNBC) invites graduate students to apply for Master’s or Doctoral scholarship full-time programs, especially students entering for the first time who have not previously held a graduate entrance scholarship. Consideration is based on academic excellence (graduate admission GPA of 4.00 or greater). These awards are renewable at the Master’s level for up to one additional consecutive year, and at the Doctoral level for up to two additional consecutive years, provided that the student maintains academic excellence. 

Applicants need to submit a research/study goals statement of a maximum of two pages. A research/study goals statement is a short document that provides a brief history of your past research experience, the current state of your research and the future work you intend to complete. Your statement should start by articulating the broader field that you are working within and the larger questions that you are interested in answering. It should then move to articulate your specific interest. It should also include the following:

[1] Your specific area of interest (i.e. the research topic you want to work on)

[2] How your past education and other experiences have prepared you to be successful in the graduate program

[3] What you hope to achieve in your graduate program

[4] Why this particular program at  UNBC is the best place for you to pursue your interests

[5] Include the name of the proposed academic supervisor and how he/she is the best “fit” for your research

Other tips for a strong Research/Study Goals Statement: 

[1] State any work you have done in this area already (mention specific skills/techniques you have picked up)

[2] Connect your area of interest to work being done in the program (mention specific faculty members and projects)

[3] Refer to academic publications that have informed your interest 

Value of scholarship:

The scholarship is valued at $10,000 for full-time students.
