Undergrad Student Awards and Prizes
Thanks to the generosity of external donors and UBC, the department is able to offer many awards and prizes to its undergraduate students. The department is responsible for recommending its students for these awards each year.
To be eligible for any scholarships, prizes, fellowships, academic awards, service awards and bursaries student needs to fulfill the Senate Regulations. For the majority of students these regulations are fulfilled by having at least 27 percentage graded, credits from last year and being registered as a fulltime student in the coming year; however, there are exceptions. Please consult the Senate Regulations webpage (http://www.calendar.ubc.ca/vancouver/index.cfm?tree=3%2C299%2C0%2C0)for details. In addition to these requirements, each award may have its own requirements.
Also mentioned below is the Premier Undergraduate and Wesbrook (#PUSWSC)Scholarships (#PUSWSC) and Other Scholarships and Awards (#Other); Dean of Science Excellence in Service Awards (#science), CAP University Prize Exam (#CAP), NSERC Undergraduate Student Research Awards (USRA) (#USRA), and the Erich Vogt First Year Summer Research Experience (FYSRE) (#FYSRE).
Scholarships are mostly based on academic achievement, but can include non-academic factors such as leadership, UBC or Faculty involvement, etc. They are awarded at the start of the academic year and they appear on the student transcript.
