UBC: Update on Entrance Scholarships

In the past, to be considered for the UBC Major Entrance Scholarships (MES), Canadian students have been required to apply for the scholarships separately from applying for admission. The scholarships offered range from one-time $5,000 awards to the renewable $40,000 awards. This year, Canadian applicants need only to submit their online admissions applications and the information on their Personal Profile will automatically be used for both admissions purposes and MES consideration. UBC believes that it will make the scholarship application process much easier.

For Fall 2013 entry, Canadian citizens and permanent residents who wish to be considered for a Major Entrance Scholarship must submit their online application by December 10, 2012. Canadian citizens and permanent residents only applying for admission to UBC must apply by January 31, 2013.
