The Indigenous and Black Engineering and Technology (IBET) Momentum Fellowship is a collaborative effort among the Indigenous|Black Students in Engineering and Technology (IBET) PhD Project, the Experiential Learning in Innovation, Technology, and Entrepreneurship (ELITE) Program for Black Youth, and the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Alberta to provide financial support to Indigenous and Black scholars to pursue full-time PhD studies in any engineering discipline at the University of Alberta.

Recipients of the fellowship will receive a $30,000 stipend per year for four years, which includes funding for tuition and fees, plus $4,000 over four years to support attendance at technical conferences or workshops where they are encouraged to present their research work. Funding will be from the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Alberta ($25,000 or $15,000 per year), the PhD program supervisor ($5,000 or $15,000 per year), and the ELITE Program for Black Youth ($4,000 total). PhD program supervisors will agree to provide a supplementary cash contribution of either $5,000 or $15,000 per year, as determined by the fellowship award amount received by the PhD candidate from the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Alberta.

The UoA is seeking applications from qualified Indigenous and Black engineering students and professionals who are Canadian citizens, permanent residents, or refugees for funded fellowships to support PhD studies. For more details see: or contact Professor André McDonald at
