2022 UBC Public Scholars Award for Doctoral Students
APPLICATION DEADLINE: FRIDAY, MAY 20, 2022.
This award is part of the UBC Public Scholars Initiative (PSI) which intends to build connections, community, and capacity for doctoral students who are interested in explicitly linking their doctoral work to an arena of public benefit and integrating broader and more career-relevant forms of scholarship into their doctoral education process.
Value of the UBC Public Scholars Award
Up to $10,000 twice, for a total of $20,000 per student is available to support innovative/collaborative scholarship which the student would otherwise be unable to pursue. Funding can be used for:
- A research allowance (including allowance for professional development or travel relevant to the scholarly work)
- Student stipend, if the student’s current funding source would not allow the alternative project(s).
This year funding is available for up to 30-35 new students. Students may be eligible for renewal for a second year (pending new PSI funding).
This year we are also accepting applications for a unique “Climate Emergency Stream” (CES). The CES is a dedicated funding source to further increase the numbers of PSI Scholars working on issues related to the Climate Emergency, understood broadly.
