University of British Columbia (UBC) provides bachelors scholarships for talented secondary and post-secondary international students from around the world. UBC honours the achievements of incoming international students through the International Leader of Tomorrow (ILOT) program.
Host Institution: University of British Columbia in Canada (Course starts 2013)
Field of study: The scholarships are for undergraduate degrees offered by UBC.
Target group: Secondary and post-secondary students from around the world
Scholarship value/inclusions: The value of awards is commensurate with demonstrated financial need, up to full tuition costs for the relevant program of study, and living expenses. It can be renewed for up to four years of undergraduate study provided the recipient achieves satisfactory academic standing and continues to hold a valid Canadian study permit.
Eligibility: Award candidates must be nominated by their current school or college/university. To be considered for an ILOT Award you must:
* Be entering a UBC undergraduate degree program from a recognized secondary school, college or other university
* Be admissible to the first choice program you are applying to, including meeting UBC’s English Language Admission Standard
* Have an excellent academic record (at least an “A” average or equivalent standard)
* Be an international student, who is neither a Canadian citizen nor a permanent resident of Canada, and who will be studying in Canada on a Canadian Study Permit (visa)
* Demonstrate a level of financial need that would otherwise prevent you from pursuing a UBC degree.
Application instructions: Award candidates must be nominated by their current school or college/university. UBC does not send packages directly to students. If you wish to be considered for an award, speak to your counsellor who can request a nomination package from UBC. The deadline for nomination packages to be received at UBC is 31 January 2013.
