Exchange student awards (Go Global)

Current scholarships for exchange students

There are a number of scholarships specifically for students going on exchange. Visit Go Global’s awards and scholarships to view current exchange scholarships.

Eligibility for scholarships after your exchange

If you are enrolled in an exchange program, you may be eligible for scholarships in your upcoming period of study. However, since UBC scholarships are based on results from your previous Winter Session, you will not receive automatic eligibility. You are required to submit an official transcript from your host university to the Student Services office.

In addition to this requirement, you must also meet the applicable Senate regulations governing university awards.

Sign up for direct deposit

University awards are normally applied to your tuition first. If your award is greater than your tuition, a refund for the remaining amount will be directly deposited to your bank account if you are signed up for direct deposit on Student Services Centre (SSC) for Summer 2024, or if you are signed up for direct deposit in Workday for Winter 2024/2025 and beyond. How-to tutorials for setting up direct deposits in Workday will be made available in June on
