Scholarships are awarded at the beginning of the academic year for academic achievement. They are based on grades and achievements from the previous Winter session but can also include non-academic factors, such as leadership, UBC or faculty involvement, and other criteria. To be eligible, you will typically need to be enrolled in a minimum of 24 credits in the Winter Session.
Prizes are awarded at the end of the academic year for academic achievement. Criteria for prizes can include achievement in a particular course or program, leadership, participation, or work on a project.
Prizes may include financial awards, books, or medals.
Academic awards are adjudicated either at the start or the end of the academic year and are based on academic achievement.
Non-academic or service awards
Non-academic or service awards recognize achievement or participation in athletics, leadership, UBC or community involvement, and other rewarding pursuits. They do not appear on transcripts. Applicants typically do not need to be registered in a minimum of 24 credits in the Winter Session.
