Graduate scholarships

Internal awards

UNB Graduate Students have access to over 160 graduate awards generously funded by donors including current and former UNB students, faculty, and staff as well as many friends of UNB. 

Many graduate awards are handled by individual department and follow an internal application or nomination process. Students should inquire of their home departments for details about these awards.

The School of Graduate Studies has also introduced a PhD Recruitment Funding Program, which will allow GAUs to nominate incoming students for a variety of prestigious graduate scholarships.
