UNB offers graduate work and research in over 30 different fields and welcomes students from every corner of the globe. It enjoys a high profile as a research institution, and its faculty and students have won many national and international awards. The appointment of Canada Research Chairs in fields as varied as Atlantic Canada History, Biology (including the Canadian Rivers Institute), Chemical Engineering, Humanities Computing, Biomedical Engineering, and Social Policy all speak to the vigour of the UNB research environment. As well, exciting international opportunities exist for graduate students through endowments such as the John S. Little Overseas Fellowships, the Fredrik and Catherine Eaton UNB-Queen's University Belfast Program. The William S. Lewis Doctoral Fellowships bring distinction and generous financial support exclusive to UNB.
