UBC and the University's donors provide a range of financial support to reward your academic and extracurricular achievements and meet your financial needs.
Scholarships are merit-based awards primarily based on academic achievement. Other merits such as community involvement or athletic achievements may also be considered.
- Hybrid awards
Hybrid awards are given based on a combination of academic and/or other achievement and financial need.
Bursaries are assessed based on unmet financial need. Student awards based solely or partially on financial need are not shown on a student's transcript.
Fellowships are given at the start of the academic year to a graduate student primarily based on academic achievement, research ability or research potential.
Medals are non-monetary awards given at the end of an academic year to a graduating student, based primarily on academic achievement.
Prizes are given to a student at the end of the academic session to recognize performance in a particular course, research performance, or publication record.
