Major Entrance Scholarship
UBC is looking for the most accomplished and promising Canadian citizens and permanent residents to join our community. If you have begun — but not completed — your UBC application, please do so by December 1, 2016. If you apply by this date, you will be eligible for UBC’s Major Entrance Scholarship (MES), including a one-time award of approximately $5,000, and renewable awards of up to $40,000 payable over four years.
All high school and CEGEP applicants will be evaluated for the Major Entrance Scholarship based on their Academic Profile and Personal Profile sections of the online application. Learn more about UBC’s Major Entrance Scholarship.
International Major Entrance Scholarship
Each year, International Major Entrance Scholarships (IMES) are offered to exceptional international students entering undergraduate programs at UBC. The scholarship totals up to $40,000 CAD, payable at up to $10,000 CAD per year for four years.
No separate application is required — admission records and Personal Profiles are reviewed after admission to UBC to determine IMES eligibility and competitiveness. Apply for admission by January 15, 2017 to be considered for the IMES. Learn more about International Major Entrance Scholarships.
