Awards for Aboriginal Students

UBC has scholarships, bursaries and awards for Aboriginal students and students in Aboriginal-focused course work.

Major Entrance Scholarships

UBC has almost $100,000 in Major Entrance Scholarships for Aboriginal secondary school students, including two renewable scholarships valued at $20,000 each, seven one-time awards valued at $5,000 each, and two renewable entrance scholarships for Bachelor of Arts students valued at $6,000 each. For more information on how to apply, please visit the Major Entrance Scholarships page. Aboriginal students who apply before the deadline will be considered for both general Major Entrance Scholarships and the Aboriginal specific scholarships.

Aboriginal Awards

UBC also has an Aboriginal Awards program. There are twenty-five awards totaling approximately $35,000 in bursaries, scholarships, and awards for Canadian Aboriginal students. Several of these awards are available to students in Aboriginal-focused course work. Students can apply for Aboriginal scholarships and bursaries by submitting the Aboriginal Awards application form. The application form is available in March, and the deadline is June 2, 2014.

Need help with financial planning?

Having a financial plan is just as important as having an academic plan. We have online resources and advisors to help you. If you are an Aboriginal student who requires help with financial planning, awards, or sponsorship billing, please contact:
