Are you a Canadian citizen, permanent resident, or protected person in Canada 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 substantial financial help.
Renewable and one-time awards
The awards can either be a one-time amount, or a sum given annually over four years. The value of the awards can range up to $80,000, which will cover the full cost of your degree and living expenses.
Centennial Scholars Entrance Awards are available to students at both UBC Okanagan and UBC Vancouver, and are given to incoming high-school students and post-secondary students transferring to direct-entry programs (programs you can enter directly in your first year of study).
Apply now for a Centennial Scholars Entrance Award
The application for the award is available online and is due by December 1, 2020, which is also the date you must have submitted your application of admission to UBC in order to qualify. The award 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! We’re looking forward to seeing new faces next year.
