APPLY NOW! 2018 University Of British Columbia Scholarships For International Students

UBC’s International Scholars have the potential to make a difference in the world. They are high academic achievers, they have demonstrated exceptional extracurricular activities, and they are dedicated to giving back to their communities.

INTERNATIONAL LEADER OF TOMORROW AWARD

International Leader of Tomorrow Award winners receive awards proportional to financial need. Financial need is determined by tuition, fees, and living costs, minus the financial contribution you and your family can make annually. A standard needs-assessment is based on the financial information provided by you and your family.

The International Leader of Tomorrow Award can be renewed for up to three additional years of undergraduate study or to degree completion, whichever is less. Your award may be renewed provided you achieve satisfactory academic standing in your faculty, continue to demonstrate financial need, and maintain your Canadian study permit (student visa).

Eligibility

To be considered for an International Leader of Tomorrow Award, you must:

  • be applying for your first undergraduate degree
  • be admissible to the first-choice degree you are applying to, including meeting UBC’s English Language Admission Standard
  • have an excellent academic record (at least an “A” average or equivalent standard)
  • be an international student – neither a Canadian citizen nor a permanent resident of Canada – and be studying in Canada on a Canadian study permit (student visa)
  • demonstrate a level of financial need that would otherwise prevent you from pursuing a UBC degree
  • be entering a UBC undergraduate degree program from a recognized secondary school, college, or other university

Nomination

You must be nominated by the high school you are currently attending or recently graduated from, or the college/university you are transferring from. When you are confirmed for nomination by your school, college, or university, your institution must use the International Leader of Tomorrow Award nomination package.

We encourage you to submit your application for admission to UBC early. This will ensure that you have an admission decision in time for award nomination consideration.

  • You must complete the online application for academic admission to UBC no later than December 1, 2017.
  • You must meet UBC’s English Language Admission Standard by January 31, 2018.

Although you can specify two degree choices in your application for admission, your award consideration will be based only on your first-choice degree.

DONALD A. WEHRUNG INTERNATIONAL STUDENT AWARD

The Donald A. Wehrung International Student Award recognizes outstanding international undergraduate students from impoverished or war-torn areas who have achieved academic excellence under difficult circumstances, and who would be unable to attend university without financial assistance.

The value of the award is proportional to demonstrated financial need and enough to cover tuition costs for your program of study, including living expenses.

The Donald A. Wehrung International Student Award can be renewed for up to three additional years of undergraduate study or to degree completion, whichever is less. Your award may be renewed provided you achieve satisfactory academic standing in your faculty, continue to demonstrate financial need, and maintain your Canadian study permit (student visa).

Eligibility

To be considered for the Donald A. Wehrung International Student Award, you must:

  • be an international student – neither a Canadian citizen nor a permanent resident of Canada – and be studying in Canada on a Canadian study permit (student visa)
  • come from a war-torn, or politically unstable region of the world, and/or from an economically disadvantaged region of the world
  • have achieved academic excellence under difficult circumstances, with no financial means from family or other sources to pursue post-secondary education (neither in your own country because it is unavailable or unattainable, nor outside your country because it is unaffordable)
  • be graduating or have recently graduated from a recognized senior secondary school
  • be applying for your first undergraduate degree
  • be able to demonstrate superior academic achievement (at least an “A” average or equivalent standard) and leadership potential

Nomination

You may be nominated by your secondary school, by a recognized international development agency and its affiliate, or by a registered local or international charitable and not-for-profit organization.

  • A school, agency, or organization may nominate only one student for undergraduate study at UBC’s Okanagan or Vancouver campuses.
  • Once a school nominates a student, no other students from the same school can be nominated by an agency or organization for this award.

Schools, agencies, and organizations must use the nomination form, below.
