Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarships

The University of British Columbia

The Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarships (CGS) program is designed to attract and retain world-class doctoral students by supporting students who demonstrate both leadership skills and a high standard of scholarly achievement in graduate studies in the social sciences and humanities, natural sciences and engineering, and health-related fields. Canadian citizens, permanent residents of Canada, and international students, i.e citizens of any other country in the world, are eligible to be nominated for a Vanier Scholarship, which is valued at $50,000 per year for up to three years.

The application is completed online on ResearchNet:

UBC Vanier application deadline: 12 noon (PDT - Vancouver time) on Thursday, 2 September 2021

Note: Given the continuing challenges related to COVID-19 and the difficulty of obtaining/processing paper transcripts, it is recommended that applicants order official transcripts that can be sent electronically from their previous institutions to UBC, rather than by mail, where possible.

Vanier CGS requires official transcripts - unofficial transcripts are not accepted for non-UBC transcripts.  For details on transcript requrements, applicants are recommended to review UBC's Vanier webpage (section ' Application Procedures').
