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 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 (e.g., desks, chairs), and it is not intended to fund technology that is a standard requirement for a particular program. 

How to apply

Students can submit requests for technology bursary funding through an online application. An Enrolment Services Advisor will follow up with students who have submitted an application within 5 to 7 business days.
