UBC Canada Outstanding International Scholarship 2017 | UBC Scholarships 2017
University of British Columbia, UBC Canada has invited applications for Outstanding International Students Award Scholarship to undergraduates for 2017 sessions.
The 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. Your award may be renewed provided you achieve satisfactory academic standing in your faculty, continue to demonstrate financial need, and maintain your Canadian study permit (student visa).
Outstanding International Scholarship Eligibility Criteria 2017
To be considered for the Donald A. Wehrung International Student Award, you must:
(a) Applicant should be an international student – neither a Canadian citizen nor a permanent resident of Canada – and be studying in Canada on a Canadian study permit (student visa).
(b) Applicant has achieved academic excellence under difficult circumstances, with no financial means from family or other sources to pursue post-secondary education (neither in your own country because it is unavailable or unattainable, or outside your country, because it is unaffordable).
(c) Applicant should be graduating or have recently graduated from a recognized senior secondary school.
(d) Applicant should be applying for your first undergraduate degree.
(e) Applicant should be able to demonstrate superior academic achievement (at least an “A” average or equivalent standard) and leadership potential.
Outstanding International Scholarship Application Procedure 2017
An application to a UBC undergraduate program and a nomination for the Donald Wehrung International Student Award are separate processes and will be independently evaluated.
Complete an online application for undergraduate admission to UBC at you.ubc.ca. Use your full legal name exactly as it appears in your passport or other official documentation.
The normal application procedure requires payment of application fees before the application can be submitted electronically. DWISA nominees DO NOT have to pay these fees, and you must, therefore, follow a special procedure in order to submit your Admission Application.
Although you can specify two-degree choices in your application for admission, your award consideration will be based only on your first-choice degree.
International Student Initiative “The University of British Columbia 1200 – 1874 East Mall, Welcome Centre Vancouver BC, CANADA V6T 1Z1” Nominees or their school should keep a copy of their DWISA nomination package.
