Graduate students at Royal Roads University can now apply for scholarships worth $15,000 funded by the Ministry of Advanced Education, Skills and Training.

The British Columbia Graduate Scholarship is a merit-based award intended to attract and retain the best and brightest students in their respective fields. It provides funding for 12 months of study in a research-intensive or professional graduate degree program.

Royal Roads is offering 12 of these scholarships before the end of the 2020-2021 academic year, distributed through four competitions; three scholarships are available in this first competition.

The scholarships are research focused with an emphasis on provincial priorities, including Indigenous students, and the disciplines of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Preference will be given to first-time Royal Roads students.
