Graduate Scholarships

At NBIF, we know that the best students attract the best professors and vice versa. Our graduate scholarships initiative is designed to attract and retain the best graduate students to New Brunswick. Scholarships range from $4,000 to $7,000 per year for masters or doctoral studies at a publicly-funded New Brunswick post-secondary institution. If you are a student, you'll find an overview of the scholarship program and eligibility criteria below. However, note that applications for the scholarship can only be submitted by your institution's school of graduate studies or equivalent, on your behalf.

Take a look at the University of New Brunswick's new Master of Technology Management & Entrepreneurship Program (MTME). The MTME is for science, computer science and engineering graduates who are ready to bring their ideas to life. Whether you think your undergraduate project might have market potential, want to commercialize your research, have a product or service idea, or you want to take an experiential approach to learning how to manage a technology-based company, this program will give you the practical skills you'll need.

Master's Degree Studies

Students undertaking their master's degree can receive a one-year scholarship up to $7,000. Students that receive a tri-council scholarship (NSERC, SSHRC, or CIHR) are automatically eligible to receive the maximum award. Students that do not receive tri-council funding and are nominated by their post-secondary institution are awarded $6,000. Students that apply under the social innovation or STEM option receive $4,000. Scholarships can be used in the first or second year of study alone, or split between the two years.
