By 24 November 2017, the Faculty of Forestry at the University of British Columbia (UBC) is awarding a substantial grant to a single forestry student. The grant is estimated at USD280,000 and is part of the Faculty of Forestry’s efforts to retain world-class doctoral researchers. The faculty is focusing on identifying students who are both strong in terms of leadership and have an unblemished academic record. UBC can boast around 140 doctoral students every year. Furthermore, postdoctoral students who are part of the Faculty of Forestry are also part of one of the three Faculty departments depending on their supervisor’s affiliation.

Those students who opt for UBC and its fellowship are entitled to a single grant of up to USD280,000 and additional CAD70,000 annually for up to four years. The selected applicant will enroll in the university’s programme and carry out research on a given number of topics related to forestry, including bioenergy, climate change, urban forestry and much more.

To qualify for the fellowship, a number of criteria are taken into consideration. In choosing the appropriate candidate, 30% comes from their academic record, scholarships, and awards. Another 50% of how the successful candidate is shortlisted stems from how likely the candidate is to excel in their specific field. They are gauged based on attributes such as the ability to think critically and to apply skills and knowledge. Lastly, the last 20% is accounted for by the candidate’s interpersonal skills.
