UBC is rewarding promising Canadian students with opportunities, support, and up to $3,500 in funding to enhance their education and contribute to the university’s thriving community.
This award is in the spirit of UBC’s motto, Tuum est, which means, “It’s yours, and it’s up to you.” We’ll guide you through the diversity of exceptional opportunities available to you at UBC, and then provide you with the support – including up to $3,500 in award money – to pursue the endeavour of your choice.
The power is in your hands to decide how you will use the award. These experiences can help you tailor your degree to meet your personal and professional goals, and will mark your first steps in building your network and developing yourself as a well-rounded and highly employable graduate.
The UBC Tuum Est Experiential Award is offered to domestic students coming to UBC Okanagan directly from high school. A separate application is not required, but you must complete UBC’s online application by December 1.
UBC has more than 200 partner universities and institutions worldwide, in more than 38 countries. Enhance your studies and your world view with a semester abroad.
Find out how your studies relate to real-world scenarios in communities around the world as you volunteer and gain perspective on global issues. International Service Learning is available at UBC Vancouver only.
Put your classroom knowledge to work, gain valuable experience for your future career, and build your network in Canada’s second-largest co-op program.
Get research experience in an academic setting, pursue the subject you’re most passionate about, or showcase your research at a conference.
