UBC Vancouver Technology Bursary

About the bursary

The UBC Vancouver Technology Bursary is a one-time needs-based bursary to help students meet the basic requirements of online learning by supporting the costs of necessary equipment like headphones, web cameras, specialized accessibility technology, or Internet access.

Eligibility requirements

  • Students must be enrolled and registered in an undergraduate, graduate, or post-baccalaureate degree program at the UBC Vancouver campus.
  • Students must demonstrate they have financial need and that they do not have access to any alternative funding to cover the costs requested through this bursary.
  • Students must outline how the technology is essential to their ability to engage in and complete UBC coursework.

This funding is not intended for improvements to physical workspaces, such as desks or chairs, or technology that is a standard requirement for a particular program.
