Graduate Global Lidership Fellowship
The Graduate Global Leadership Fellowships enable promising leaders from developing countries to pursue doctoral studies at the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Canada. The fellowships are to support international students showing outstanding leadership in humanitarian and development work in their home country. Graduate Global Leadership Fellowships thus open the way to a world-class graduate education for emerging scholars from countries with developing educational systems.

Recipients would be individuals with an appropriate academic background and who have an established records of contribution to the development of a civil and sustainable society in their home country through professional, academic or volunteer work. Two new fellowships will be offered each year.
