This program offers entering students one-time awards and renewable awards of up to $40,000 payable over four years.
The 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 campus or UBC’s Okanagan campus directly from high school. You and your family must complete an application to demonstrate financial need.
