Tsi’Tsu’Wu’Tul Scholarship Award
A graduate or undergraduate Indigenous student who has surmounted considerable challenges is granted an award. The prize is presented twice a year, between June and November, and awardees are recognized during ceremonies for indigenous recognition.
• To qualify for any graduate scholarships you must be unconditionally admitted to a master’s or doctoral degree program and be registered in enough units in your graduate degree program (see below). • UVic Graduate Awards of up to $10,000 per academic year require a minimum GPA of 6.0/9.0 or higher (as of 2022-2023) and a minimum of 1.50 units per term.
• Graduate Awards allow for part-time registration in a minimum of 1.5 units each term.
• Graduate donor awards, those funded by private donors, require full-time registration in a minimum of 3.0 units unless the specific terms of the scholarship indicate that it may be issued to a part-time student or a student who has completed their graduate program.
• Graduate students registered with the Centre for Accessible Learning (CAL) are considered to be full-time when registered in 1.5 units and are eligible to be considered for all UVic graduate scholarships when registered in 1.5 or more units. Students must identify themselves to FGS and send a copy of their CAL letter to [email protected]
• To maintain eligibility and avoid delays in scholarship payments, register at least two-to-three weeks, or more, in advance of each term in the required number of units.
