Graduate awards

All eligible incoming graduate students and continuing graduate students are assessed for University of Victoria Graduate Awards and Fellowships, and for our GRACE, Graduate Research Award for Chemistry Excellence. There is no need to apply.

Each year the Department of Chemistry gives out dozens of small grad fellowships known in the Department as Academic Achievement Awards. There are also a variety of larger UVic Fellowships, University-wide scholarships, and Donor Awards given each year. These awards are celebrated at our department awards party at the University Club in November. Previous years' recipients are in the tabs below.

Faculty and senior lab instructors nominate and recognize the work of Chemistry graduate students'  as outstanding Teaching Assistants through annual awards.
