UBC Awards

Annually, UBC awards a series of internal UBC prizes for various career stages. Some require nomination by peers or your Faculty, for some you can submit the nomination yourself. Some awards are for communication and outreach. If you are interested, please reach out to Pia Smets.

Note: awards/scholarships for your students are a totally different thing. You can find them listed here, and Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies offers many useful workshops for your graduate students to navigate this terrain. Also consult Julie Morey and the graduate studies team for advice on student funding.
