University of British Columbia International Leader of Tomorrow Award Scholarships 2021 for study in Canada (Funded)

394

UBC’s International Scholars have the potential to make a difference in the world. They are high academic achievers, they have demonstrated exceptional extracurricular activities, and they are dedicated to giving back to their communities.

Two prestigious need-and-merit-based awards are available through UBC’s International Scholars Program.

Karen McKellin International Leader of Tomorrow Award

This need-and-merit-based award recognizes international undergraduate students who demonstrate superior academic achievement, leadership skills, involvement in student affairs and community service, and recognized achievement in other key areas.

The value of your Karen McKellin International Leader of Tomorrow Award is proportional to your financial need. Financial need is determined by totalling tuition, fees, and living costs, and subtracting the financial contribution you and your family can make each year. A standard needs assessment is based on the financial information provided by you and your family.

Your award may be renewed for up to three additional years of undergraduate study or to degree completion – whichever comes first – provided you achieve satisfactory academic standing in your faculty, continue to demonstrate financial need, and maintain your Canadian study permit (student visa).

Eligibility

To be considered for the Karen McKellin International Leader of Tomorrow Award:

  • You must be an international student who will be studying in Canada on a Canadian study permit.
  • You must be entering UBC from a recognized secondary school, college, or other university.
  • You must be applying for your first undergraduate degree.
  • You must meet UBC’s admission requirements, including general and degree-specific requirements and the English Language Admission Standard.
  • You must demonstrate superior academic achievement (achieve all As or equivalent standard).
  • You must demonstrate a level of financial need that would otherwise prevent you from pursuing a UBC degree.

Please note: If you are nominated for a Karen McKellin International Leader of Tomorrow Award, you will not be considered for merit-based awards, including International Major Entrance Scholarships and Outstanding International Student Awards.

Nominations

Applications for the award will open on November 1, 2020.

Deadlines

  • December 15: Submit your award application and complete the online application for admission to UBC. Although you can specify two degree choices in your application, only your first-choice degree will be considered for the purposes of this award.
  • January 31: Meet UBC’s English Language Admission Standard.
  • Mid-April: Nominees will be informed if they have received an award.

Donald A. Wehrung International Student Award

This need-and-merit-based award recognizes outstanding international undergraduate students from impoverished or war-torn areas who have achieved academic excellence under difficult circumstances, and who would be unable to attend university without financial assistance.

The value of your Donald A. Wehrung International Student Award is proportional to your demonstrated financial need and sufficient to cover living expenses and tuition costs for your degree of study.

Your award may be renewed for up to three additional years of undergraduate study or to degree completion – whichever comes first – provided you achieve satisfactory academic standing in your faculty, continue to demonstrate financial need, and maintain your Canadian study permit (student visa).

Eligibility

To be considered for the Donald A. Wehrung International Student Award:

  • You must be an international student who will be studying in Canada on a Canadian study permit.
  • You must be graduating or have recently graduated from a recognized senior secondary school.
  • You must be applying for your first undergraduate degree.
  • You must meet UBC’s admission requirements, including general and degree-specific requirements and the English Language Admission Standard.
  • You must demonstrate superior academic achievement (achieve all As or equivalent standard) and leadership potential.
  • You must come from a war-torn, politically unstable, or economically disadvantaged region of the world.
  • You must have achieved academic excellence under difficult circumstances and have no financial means from family or other sources to pursue post-secondary education in your own country (because it is unavailable or unattainable) or outside your country (because it is unaffordable).

Please note: If you are nominated for a Donald A. Wehrung International Student Award, you will not be considered for merit-based awards, including International Major Entrance Scholarships and Outstanding International Student Awards.
