This program offers entering students one-time and renewable awards of up to $40,000 payable over four years.
The Centennial Scholars Entrance Award is separate from the Major Entrance Scholarships. Students are eligible to apply for both awards, provided they meet the criteria.
Am I eligible?You’re eligible if you are a Canadian citizen or permanent resident entering UBC’s Vancouver or Okanagan campus directly from high school or transferring from another post-secondary institution to your first undergraduate degree (post-baccalaureate students are not eligible to apply).

The application requires a reference letter from someone who is well acquainted with you and who can comment on your character, interest in UBC, and financial situation. This could include – but is not limited to – coaches, teachers, counsellors, principals, supervisors from work and volunteer positions, family doctors, and community or religious leaders.
