- All Aboriginal students are eligible to apply, but priority is given to Aboriginal students whose traditional territory falls, at least in part, within Canada. This includes Canadian First Nations, Métis or Inuit students and may include Aboriginal students from Alaska and the northern states of the USA. The University may request further information to confirm Aboriginal eligibility.
- Applicants may or may not be UBC graduate students at the time of application – the competition is open to both incoming and continuing graduate students. However, awardees must be enrolled as full-time graduate students at the UBC-Vancouver campus for the 2018-2019 academic years in order to receive an Aboriginal Graduate Fellowship through this competition. Students in the following programs are not eligible: MEng, MM, MBA, and PharmD
- To be eligible to receive Aboriginal Graduate Fellowship funding, students are required to limit their number of hours of paid employment to an average of 12 hours per week during the funding period.
- As research potential or ability is one of the primary selection criteria, AGF recipients are to maintain registration in graduate programs that include a significant research component (e.g., thesis or major research project). Recipients who plan to transfer to a graduate program that does not include a significant research component should first consult with the Graduate Awards team.
