Trek Excellence Scholarship

About the scholarship

Trek Excellence Scholarships are offered every year to students in the top 5% of their undergraduate year, faculty, and school. Rankings are based on students’ top 27 percentage-graded credits, as per Senate Award regulations.

Domestic students receive an award of $1,500 and international students receive an award of $4,000. Awards of $1,000 are also given to international students who are in the top 5% to 10%.

Am I eligible?

Eligibility is evaluated on grades and records from your previous Winter Session. You must have been registered in at least 27 percentage-graded credits and be continuing in the same faculty or school.

Your average will be based on your best 27 percentage-graded credits.

The following courses will not be counted toward your average:

  • Audited courses
  • Wait-listed courses
  • Summer courses
  • Credit/D/Fail courses

You must be continuing in the same faculty and school, and be registered in a minimum of 24 credits. If you are on a Co-op or Exchange term, get details on awards for Co-op and Exchange students, or contact your Enrolment Services Professional (ESP) directly for more information.

If you are in a post-baccalaureate program such as Medicine, Dentistry, Law, or Education (except NITEP) you will not be eligible. You do, however, qualify for substantial faculty-recommended scholarships.

How do I apply?

There is no application required for Trek Excellence Scholarships. Students are automatically considered based on their grades for the prior session. We start notifying students in late August and continue into late September. 

See the UBC Senate Regulations for minimum scholarship course load requirements.
