The International Doctoral Fellowship (IDF) program supports top international students who are starting UBC-V doctoral programs. The fellowship provides funding for a total of five years: a $30,000 stipend plus tuition for four years and a minimum $18,000 funding package (from the recipient’s supervisor/department/Faculty, comprising awards, teaching assistantships and/or research assistantships) for the fifth year. Approximately 35 new fellowships will be awarded each year. This program was formerly known as the University Doctoral Fellowship.

To be eligible, nominees must:

  • hold a valid student visa when they begin their UBC doctoral program
  • be starting a UBC-V doctoral program in January, May or September 2018. For fast-track students (who advance / transfer from a Master’s to a doctoral program without completing their Master’s degree), the effective date of transfer to the doctoral program must be January, May or September 2018.
  • be pursuing their first doctoral degree
