Scholarship worth, benefits, and duration:
Karen McKellin International Leader of Tomorrow Award is valued according to your financial need. The total of tuition, fees, and living costs is subtracted from the financial contribution you and your family can make each year to assess financial need. The financial information you and your family supply is used to create a standard needs assessment.
If you maintain satisfactory academic standing in your faculty, continue to demonstrate financial need, and maintain your Canadian study permit, your award may be renewed for up to three further years of undergraduate study or until you complete your degree — whichever comes first (student visa).
To be considered for the Karen McKellin International Leader of Tomorrow Award, please complete the following form.
• You must be an international student with a Canadian study permit who will be studying in Canada.
• You must be transferring from a recognized high school or from your first year at a post-secondary college or other university to attend UBC.
• You must have graduated from high school no more than two years prior to the academic year for which you are applying. Applicants for the class of 2022, for example, must have graduated from high school no sooner than June 2020.
• You must be pursuing your first bachelor’s degree.
• You must have a high level of academic achievement (achieve all As or equivalent standard).
• You must meet UBC’s admission standards, including general and degree-specific requirements, as well as the English Language Admission Standard, and you must demonstrate a level of financial need that would otherwise preclude you from obtaining a UBC degree.
