Students who receive major awards have unique interests and responsibilities, and face particular challenges. That’s why UBC has created the Scholar's Community – to ensure top scholars like you receive the support and inspiration you need to achieve your best!
The UBC Scholar's Community is an award-winning student program that helps domestic major and renewable award recipients manage the academic and personal expectations of their awards by providing a support network from students facing similar pressures. The community empowers scholars to meet their academic and professional goals by providing opportunities that encourage social and personal wellbeing, promote academic and professional development, and encourage leadership and community engagement.
The Scholar's Community was recognized in the 2020 NASPA Excellence Awards as the Gold recipient in the category of Enrollment Management, Financial Aid, First-year, Other-year Orientation, and related Excellence.
