UBC Okanagan Student Involvement and Leadership Award 

Have you been involved on campus, within your community, or other organizations? UBC Okanagan, in partnership with alumni UBC, wants to recognize and celebrate graduating students who made it their mission to give back and get involved while they were a student. 

Who should apply? 

UBC Okanagan students who have been involved on-campus or within their community during their studies at UBC Okanagan should consider applying for this award. Involvement may include volunteering on- or off-campus, working on- or off-campus, facilitating mentorship, involvement, and leadership in clubs or associations, actively participating in events and initiatives, etc. Involvement breadth (multiple, shorter commitments) and depth (fewer, longer commitments) are equally considered.  


The following criteria are required to apply: 

  • Students must graduate and have their degrees conferred between September 2023 and August 2024. 
  • Undergraduate and graduate students are welcome to apply.
  • Students must be in good academic standing.  


The application will include two reflection-based essay questions related to the impact of leadership and community involvement during your studies. You will also be asked to include an updated resume and a minimum of one or maximum of two reference(s).  The following resources are necessary to complete your application. 

Up to ten winners will be selected each year. Winners will be celebrated at an award reception in April. 


Applications for the 2023/24 academic year must be submitted by 11:59 pm on Sunday, February 25, 2024.
