External awards and bursaries

Many organizations offer their own scholarships that can be used towards a UBC education. Students apply directly to a corporation, parent's employer or community group. We recommend you take advantage of outside scholarships by searching actively in your community and by using websites such as:

  • Scholarships Canada
    Canadian scholarship portal with searchable database containing scholarships, student awards, bursaries and grants.
  • Student Awards
    Online awards search service that includes information on scholarships, bursaries, grants and other forms of financial assistance.
  • Community Foundation - South Okanagan & Similkameen
    The Community Foundation currently offers five bursary awards totaling $37,000. Application deadline is April 18, 2016

At the beginning of each academic session be sure to notify Student Services of all outside scholarships and prizes, even if the award cheques are made payable directly to you. Failure to do so may result in the forfeiture of future financial assistance from UBC. Scholarships and prizes are treated as income and will become part of your student contribution in calculating your financial need.
