The cIRcle GSS Open Scholar Award countdown to the next deadline is well underway for all UBC Vancouver graduate students. This Award aims to feature UBC as a leader in the open dissemination of graduate student work while creating an incentive for graduate students to populate cIRcle with material beyond theses and dissertations. Examples of non-thesis graduate coursework include research essays and papers, conference and other presentations (including posters) as well as video and audio based projects to mention just a few.
Upload your non-thesis graduate coursework to the GSS cIRcle Open Scholar Award collection at: https://circle.ubc.ca/handle/2429/42591 before the next deadline – Tuesday, September 23rd. Award eligibility details are available at: http://circle.sites.olt.ubc.ca/gss-graduate-student-society-open-scholar-award/.
