All undergraduate students in a degree program may be eligible for awards offered by UBC thanks to the generosity of faculties and external donors. These may be awarded in the form of scholarships, prizes, fellowships, and other awards. Faculty recommended awards are not available to students in diploma or certificate programs.
Individual faculties are responsible for recommending their students for these awards. Recommendations are based on a range of factors, such as academic achievement, leadership, UBC involvement, and participation on varsity athletic teams.
