Aboriginal student awards

Presidential scholars awards

UBC has renewable scholarships valued at $30,000 each for Aboriginal students entering directly from a senior secondary school in British Columbia, and renewable scholarships valued at $15,000 each for Canadian Aboriginal students entering UBC as a transfer student from a recognized post-secondary institution. For more information on how to apply, visit the Presidential Scholars Awards page. Aboriginal students who apply before the deadline will be considered for both general entrance scholarships and Aboriginal-specific scholarships.

Aboriginal awards

UBC also has several scholarships, bursaries and awards for Aboriginal students. Several of these awards are faculty-recommended awards that are offered to students after their first year of study. Individual faculties are responsible for recommending their students for these awards. Recommendations are based on a range of factors, such as academic achievement, leadership, UBC involvement, and participation on varsity athletic teams.
