Are you a Canadian student (citizens and permanent residents) hoping to attend UBC, but aren’t sure how you’ll finance it? If so, you may want to apply for a Centennial Scholars Entrance Award. These awards assist students who are academically qualified and hope to contribute to the UBC community, but would not be able to attend without significant financial assistance.
Renewable and one-time awards
The awards – which can either be a one-time amount or an amount awarded every year for four years – range in value up to $40,000. They are for students on both UBC’s Okanagan and Vancouver campuses and are available to both incoming high-school students and post-secondary transfer students transferring to their first undergraduate degree (post-baccalaureate students are unfortunately not eligible).
Apply now for a Centennial Scholars Entrance Award
The application is available online and is due by December 1, 2016, as well as your application of admission to UBC. The application includes an overview of your financial situation (including information from your parents, if applicable), an essay-style description of your circumstances, and a reference form with questions for a third party who is willing to speak to your accomplishments, character, and, if possible, your financial need.
Good luck with your applications and we’re looking forward to seeing new faces on campus next year!
