(原文)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.
1.International Major Entrance Scholarship
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. The exact number and level of scholarships varies each year, depending on available funding.
Am I eligible?
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
2.Outstanding International Student Award
The Outstanding International Student (OIS) Award is a one-time merit-based entrance scholarship awarded to qualified students when they are offered admission to UBC. Students selected for this award show strength academically and display involvement outside of the classroom.
Am I eligible?
To be considered for an OIS Award, you must
be new to UBC, entering directly from secondary school or post-secondary (university or college)
be an international student studying at UBC on a Canadian study permit (student visa). (Changes to your citizenship status will affect your scholarship eligibility.)
demonstrate outstanding academic achievement and strong extra-curricular involvement
apply to UBC by January 15
(原文)I’ve applied to UBC. But what about the OIS and IMES?
You probably have some questions about how the OIS and IMES are awarded, when you’ll hear from UBC about them, and when you’ll get the money. Here are some answers:
Do I need to apply for admission by a certain date to be considered for OIS and IMES?
You must submit your UBC application for admission by January 15 in order to be considered for the OIS and IMES.
How will I be considered for OIS or IMES?
All international students are automatically considered for the OIS and/or IMES as soon as they have received an offer of admission to UBC. After you have received an offer of admission, your UBC application will be reviewed a second time – for OIS and IMES consideration. If you are selected for an award, you will be notified by email shortly after you are offered admission to UBC.
When are OIS and IMES decisions made?
Decisions are made on a rolling basis, beginning in February. You will be notified of your OIS or IMES status sometime between February and mid-April, depending on when you receive your offer of admission to UBC.
How will I be notified about the scholarship/award?
Students who are selected to receive the OIS and/or IMES will be notified by email between February and April.
I was awarded both the OIS and the IMES. Will I only get one, or can I receive both?
Depending on merit, you may receive the OIS only, the IMES only, or both the OIS and the IMES. If you are eligible for both, you will receive the OIS in first year, and you will receive the IMES over the course of your four-year degree.
Three weeks have passed since my status on the SSC was updated to “admitted,” and I still have not heard about OIS or IMES. What does that mean?
If it has been three weeks or longer since your SSC status was updated to “admitted,” then it has been determined that you are not eligible for OIS or IMES.
When will I receive my OIS and/or IMES funds?
You must complete course registration starting in June. The funds are then applied directly toward your tuition and fees in two scheduled installments – one in September and one in January.
Can I apply for scholarships and awards while I am a UBC student?
Yes, international students in excellent standing at UBC may apply for and receive small financial awards for their second, third, and fourth years of study. However, it is important to know that these awards are very selective, are given only one year at a time, and cover a small fraction of your overall tuition fees. They will not cover the full costs of studying and living at UBC.
自从我的 SSC 状态更新为“被接受”以来三个星期过去了，但是我仍然没有接到关于优秀国际留学生奖学金或国际主要入学奖学金的消息，这是什么意思呢?
如果自从你的 SSC 状态更新为“被接受”以来已过去了三个星期，那么说明你不符合优秀国际留学生奖学金或国际主要入学奖学金资格。
二、(原文)Merit- and need-based awards
1.International Scholars Program
UBC’s International Scholars Program offers significant support for outstanding international undergraduate students through the International Leader of Tomorrow Award and the Donald A. Wehrung International Student Award.
The International Leader of Tomorrow Award recognizes international undergraduate students who demonstrate superior academic achievement, leadership skills, involvement in student affairs and community service, recognized achievement in fields of endeavour such as the performing arts, sports, debating or creative writing, or external academic competitions and examinations.
The Donald A. Wehrung International Student Award recognizes outstanding international undergraduate students from impoverished or war-torn areas, who have achieved academic excellence under difficult circumstances and who would be unable to pursue post-secondary education without financial assistance.
The value of awards is commensurate with demonstrated financial need, and sufficient to cover tuition costs for the relevant program of study, and living expenses. A Donald A. Wehrung International Student Award can be renewed for up to three additional years of undergraduate study, or to degree completion, whichever is less, provided the recipient achieves satisfactory academic standing in their faculty, continues to demonstrate financial need, and maintains their Canadian Study Permit (visa).
英属哥伦比亚大学的国际学者项目为突出的国际本科生提供丰厚的经济支持，提供有明天国际领导人奖( International Leader of Tomorrow Award)和Donald A. Wehrung 国际学生奖。
Donald A. Wehrung 国际学生奖认可突出的来自贫穷或饱受战争蹂躏的地区的国际本科生，认可已在困难条件下拿到优秀成绩并且需要经济援助才读得起大学的国际留学生。
明天国际领导人奖和Donald A. Wehrung 国际学生奖的奖金和经济需求匹配，涵盖得起相关课程需要的学费和生活费。Donald A. Wehrung 国际学生奖可多持续三年，或者持续到完成学位(哪个在先哪个适用)——前提是获奖者在自己的学院拿到令人满意的专业成绩，继续有经济需求和持续加拿大学习允可证(签证)。
(原文)2.The MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program at UBC
The MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program at UBC provides academically talented yet economically disadvantaged young people from Sub-Saharan Africa with access to quality and relevant university education at UBC.
The MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program is a 10-year global initiative to educate and develop next-generation leaders who will contribute to social and economic progress. The Program enables young people from economically disadvantaged communities to complete quality secondary and tertiary education, and make successful transitions to further education, or to the workforce in their home countries. Through comprehensive support, Scholars receive learning opportunities that equip them with knowledge, skills, and values needed to succeed in the economy, and make positive impacts in their communities.
Scholars in the Program are primarily from Africa. In recent years, the continent has experienced unprecedented economic progress and political resurgence. More than 60 percent of its population is under the age of 25, making it the youngest continent. Yet, Sub-Saharan Africa is the region with the lowest enrollment rates in secondary and tertiary education.
The Program will educate an estimated 15,000 young people from economically disadvantaged communities. This network of next-generation leaders – unified by a common philosophy of change and ethical leadership – will drive social and economic transformation in their communities.
UBC is pleased to join the MasterCard Foundation in achieving their vision.
硕士卡基金会学者项目将为来自经济上处于劣势的社区的 15,000 名年轻人提供教育。这个新一代领导人网络由共同的改变和领导伦理理念得到巩固，将可以驱动学生自己社区的社会和经济转型。
