Through this program, we are pleased to invite applications from outstanding students from India and Commonwealth countries in Africa currently enrolled in a postgraduate program to apply for funding to be a visiting scholar at UBC for a period of four months. During this time, visiting scholars may engage in seminars and develop skills relevant to their current research work.
Applicants must currently be conducting forestry research at a university in India or Commonwealth countries in Africa (preferably, at one of our partner institutions) and identify a UBC faculty member who is willing to mentor them during their visit to UBC.
The UBC faculty mentor should have an active research program that is well-aligned with the applicant’s research. The scholarship covers airfare (max C$2,100) and living expenses (C$1,500 month x 4 months).
The deadlines is January 9, 2017 (for a start date between May 2017 to August 2017). For more information, download the PDF application. Materials should be emailed to Gayle Kosh.
