UBC Centennial Scholars Entrance Award

UBC Centennial Scholars Entrance Award

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!

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.
