University of British Columbia (UBC), a leading Canada based university is offering scholarships for International Students for its undergraduate programs for Winter Session 2017.
UBC's need plus merit-based International Scholars Program offers significant opportunities and support for outstanding international undergraduate students through the International Leader of Tomorrow Award and the Donald A. Wehrung International Student Award.
Value of the scholarship:
Awards valued at up to $50,000 CAD each are awarded to select international students who demonstrate exceptional academic achievement, intellectual promise, as well as strong extracurricular and community involvement.
The value of awards is commensurate with demonstrated financial need, and is sufficient to cover up to full tuition costs and living expenses for the relevant program of study.
Students admitted to the International Scholars Awards Program will engage in facilitated community engagement opportunities, volunteer mentorship and networking events and will receive dedicated student support and advising so that they can achieve their goals and become the leaders of tomorrow.
The International Leader of Tomorrow Award as well as the Donald A. Wehrung International Student Award can be renewed for up to three additional years of undergraduate study, or to degree completion, whichever is less, provided the student achieves required academic standing in their faculty, continues to demonstrate financial need, and maintains their Canadian study permit (visa).
UBC is a prominent choice among students from India and the International Scholars Program and other financial awards and supports are a significant reason for UBC being a top tier choice for Indian students. Almost 10% of all scholarships offered last year at UBC were made to Indian students - a total value of CAD $ 1.5 million.
Indian Students can apply for UBC's International Scholars Awards through the website; the last date for submission of the awards and admission application for September 2017 entry is December 1, 2016. Students can apply for the International Scholars Awards by visiting the website
