FINANCIAL SUPPORT

 




FINANCIAL SUPPORT

Because graduate level studies occupy a student's time completely, thereby precluding outside jobs, it is the policy of the Neuroscience Program that all admitted applicants have one of the following types of financial support:


1. Government Funding: NSERC, CIHR, etc.

Ideally this support would be in the form of a studentship for graduate study obtained from a government agency such as NSERC and CIHR.  These awards are generally applied for in the early fall preceding entry into graduate school.


2. Affiliated Fellowship

U.B.C. also offers Affiliated Fellowships (AF).  All eligible neuroscience students are encouraged to apply on-line for these awards in early Fall.


3. Research Assistantship

A student's potential supervisor may have available research grant funds to support the student's laboratory work during his studies, through the Graduate Research Assistantship (GRA) system.

Annual Student Fees are separated from tuition fees.
The University provides a mandatory basic medical insurance program for all international students as a condition of registering as a student, which covers the interim period before the provincial medical plan becomes effective.
(Extended Health & Dental Plan may be optional.)


  •  International students admitted to the Neuroscience program are eligible for an International Partial Tuition Scholarship which is applied to assist with their tuition fees.  Students are eligible as long as they are not a recipient of any external scholarships or funding that pays their tuition. http://www.grad.ubc.ca/awards/prospective-students
