UBC Presidential Scholars Awards


Scholarship Value: $80,000
Awards Available: 4

UBC is looking for the most accomplished and promising Canadian citizens and permanent residents to join our community. The Presidential Scholars Award program offers the most prestigious awards available to students who are entering UBC. These include a one-time award of approximately $5,000, and renewable awards of up to $40,000 on the Okanagan campus, and $80,000 on the Vancouver campus, each payable over four years.

Are you eligible?

High school and CEGEP students who are Canadian citizens and permanent residents are eligible for the Presidential Scholars Award. These awards recognize students who excel across the board and who have demonstrated academic and leadership achievements in the arts, community, athletics, and school.

How do you apply?

Students wishing to be considered for a Presidential Scholars Award must apply to UBC by December 1. This includes paying the admission fee and completing all sections of your online application.

All high school applicants will be evaluated for the Presidential Scholars Award for their first-choice degree based on their Academic Profile and Personal Profile sections of the online application. We will not evaluate second-choice degrees for a Presidential Scholars Award.

When will you be notified?

UBC will contact the majority of Presidential Scholars Award winners by the end of day on April 27. Only successful award applicants will be contacted.
