A gift from UBC alumna and donor Sharron Simpson to UBC’s Okanagan campus has created the Sharron Simpson Family Community Impact Awards program. Awards range from $1,000 to $2,500 and enable students to follow their dreams by pursuit of a passion, encouraging and enhancing real world learning experiences, contributing to a sense of enjoyment and fun in the pursuit of education, and giving students an opportunity to make an impact to both the campus and external community.
Awards will be adjudicated by a committee of UBC staff from the Student Experience Office and AVP Students.
