The School nominates students with high academic averages (usually A or A+) for Graduate Support Initiative (GSI) Awards for full-time study. These are normally valued at $4,000.00 per year. The School nominates students with exceptional academic records for University Graduate Fellowships each October. All full-time continuing students are considered and application procedures are distributed to students who may be eligible. The fellowship would apply to the student's second year of study. The Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies (grad.ubc.ca) administers the competition.
