UBC, like many other universities, has a number of scholarships available to those looking to get their hands on a $1,000-plus scholarship.
In addition to the $1.1 million Tallo Scholarship, there are various other scholarships available, but we’re focusing on the $500 scholarships that are available to students of Aboriginal descent.
As the University of British Columbia notes in their scholarship application, “Aboriginal students are also more likely to be at risk for homelessness and other forms of violence than other students.”
While the $5,000 scholarships listed above are for Aboriginal students, there’s another $5 scholarships available for those of other nationalities.
These include $3,000 for the “Hail to the Chief” scholarship, and $1 for the $50 “Achievement of Promise” scholarship.
These are just some of the $4,000 or so scholarships available in the UBC Student Grant Program.
To apply for these scholarships, students can contact UBC to apply or visit the U.S. Student Assistance Center.
