Hi all,

I didn’t realize that I need to upload your transcripts this year, so can you please have all your transcripts to me by Sept 2 not the 10th, since I need them before you submit your application

Thanks, Sharon

If you plan to apply for this: 1) You need to tell me by August 15th.

2) I would like to see a copy of your application before you submit it (any time before noon Sept 8th, so I can go over it for any mistakes).

3) I need a copy of your application materials, which means application form, transcripts, references etc, so the committee can judge your application as a whole – we have a quota, so only one or at most two can go forward. The deadline for

If you have any questions, please let me know.

Call for Nominations: Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarships

The Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarships (Vanier CGS) program is designed to attract and retain world-class doctoral students by offering them a significant financial award to assist them during their studies at Canadian universities. Vanier Scholars demonstrate leadership skills and a high standard of scholarly achievement in the social sciences and humanities, natural sciences and engineering, and health-related fields. Domestic and international students are eligible to be nominated for a Vanier Scholarship, which is valued at $50,000 per year for up to three years.

The Vanier application form is available on ResearchNet (

The deadline for applicants to submit applications on ResearchNet is 11:59pm (Vancouver time) on Tuesday, 9 September, 2014.

We will forward complete Vanier applications to graduate programs as they are submitted. The deadline for programs to submit nominations to the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies is 4:00pm on Wednesday, 24 September 2014.

For full details, please see our website at

Important Note regarding Student Mobility

Vanier scholars are encouraged to continuously broaden their research horizons and seek new challenges. For this reason, Vanier CGS candidates are strongly encouraged to pursue their studies at a university other than that (or those) which granted their undergraduate and graduate degrees. Candidates who are nominated by a university at which they have completed a previous degree must provide a strong and compelling rationale, in the Special Circumstances section of the application, as to why they have chosen to undertake their PhD at the same university.

Though the majority of UBC’s Vanier nominees will have a previous affiliation with UBC, we strongly encourage faculty members to identify and consider prospective students from universities beyond UBC.
