- Partially Funded
- 15 January 2017
The diversity that international students contribute to our community enriches it immeasurably. UBC recognizes the academic achievement of outstanding students from around the world by devoting more than $10 million CAD annually to awards, scholarships, and other forms of financial support for international undergraduate students.
Each year, International Major Entrance Scholarships (IMES) are awarded to exceptional international students entering undergraduate programs at UBC. Students receive their scholarships when they enter their first year at UBC, and the scholarships are renewable for up to three additional years of study.
To be considered for the IMES, you must
- be a new student to UBC, entering directly from secondary school
- be an international student who will be studying at UBC on a Canadian study permit (student visa). (Changes to your citizenship status will affect your IMES eligibility.)
- demonstrate exceptional academic achievement, intellectual promise, as well as impressive extracurricular and community involvement
- apply to UBC by January 15
The scholarship totals up to $40,000 CAD, payable at up to $10,000 CAD per year for four years. The exact number and level of scholarships varies each year, depending on available funding.
