UBC and the University's donors provide a range of financial support to reward your academic and extracurricular achievements and meet your financial needs.
The two most common types of awards administered by UBC are:
Scholarships are merit-based awards for academic achievement. Other merit awards for community involvement or athletic achievements may also be available.
Bursaries are assessed based on unmet financial need. Student awards based only on financial need are not shown on a student's transcript.
