Donald A. Wehrung International Student Award 2015
Deadline: December 10, 2014
Nominations are now accepted for the Donald A. Wehrung International Student Award 2015. The 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).
All candidates must be nominated for a Donald A. Wehrung International Student Award. To be eligible,
- nominees must be international students entering university directly from secondary school and eligible to study in Canada on a Canadian study permit.
- They must also demonstrate superior academic achievement (‘A’ average or equivalent standing) and meet UBC’s other competitive admission requirements.
How to Nominate
Recognized international, community-based, and non-governmental organizations may nominate candidates using the nomination form, below.
Please Note: Nominees must also complete the online application for academic admission to UBC by December 10, 2014 and meet the UBC English Language Admission Requirement by January 31, 2015. Although applicants to UBC can specify two program choices in their application for admission, an ISHA nomination will be considered only in relation to the nominee’s first choice program.
