Four Year Fellowship

The Four Year Doctoral Fellowship (4YF) program will ensure UBC's best PhD, DMA, and MDPhD students are provided with financial support of at least $18,200 per year plus tuition for up to four years of their Doctoral studies. This program allows UBC to continue to attract and support outstanding domestic and international Doctoral students, and provide those students with stable, base-level funding for their Doctoral studies and research. The School of Community and Regional Planning is able to offer a maximum of one 4YF to an incoming PhD student each year. 

To be considered for Four Year Fellowship funding, students submit an application for admission to the appropriate graduate program at UBC.
