The University of British Columbia (UBC) offers Four Year Doctoral Fellowship (4YF) program. The Ph.D. students are provided with monetary aid of at least $18,200 every year plus tuition for up to 04 years of doctoral studies.
- The fellowship is open to domestic and international students.
- The fellowships are accessible to students beginning their first year of full-time Ph.D., DMA, or MDPhD studies but may be offered to continuing students. The fellowship may be funded for up to four years, but the funding duration may be less in some circumstances.
- Candidates holding Tri-Agency awards automatically become 4YF designates: Doctoral Canada Graduate Scholarships (CGSD), Vanier Scholarships, NSERC Doctoral Postgraduate Scholarships (PGSD), CIHR Doctoral Research Awards, and SSHRC Doctoral Fellowships. The candidates who obtain Tri-Agency scholarships may be eligible for 4 Year Fellowship tuition coverage and will receive 4 Year Fellowship stipend and tuition support once their external scholarship funding ends, until four years after the outward award start date or until the end of their 5th year in Doctoral program, whichever comes first.
