BC NEIHR Postdoctoral Fellowship Program


The objective of the BC NEIHR Postdoctoral Fellowships program is to provide funding to Indigenous (First Nations, Métis or Inuit) postdoctoral applicants who wish to conduct

research within a British Columbia (BC) host institution. Recipients of these fellowships demonstrate achievement in graduate studies, a research-intensive career pathway, as

well as partnership potential with BC Indigenous communities, collectives and/or organizations (ICCOs).


The BC NEIHR launches a competition for Postdoctoral Fellowship(s) every two (2) years. Should more funds become available, additional fellowships may be awarded. Recipients are invited to a Learning and Sharing Circle (with funded Indigenous graduate students as well as communities, collectives and organizations), where they present their work and speak about their participation in this Fellowship program.
