The University of British Columbia is pleased to offer the Karen McKellin International Leader of Tomorrow Scholarship Award in Canada to all exceptional candidates in 2023. The Karen McKellin International Leader of Tomorrow Award recognizes international undergraduate students who demonstrate exceptional academic performance, leadership abilities, participation in student activities, and community service, as well as recognized excellence in other critical areas.
The value of this Karen McKellin International Leader of Tomorrow Award is directly related to your level of financial need. To determine how much money you and your family can contribute each year, add your tuition, fees, and living expenses together. A typical needs analysis is based on the financial information you and your family have provided. Your scholarship may be extended for up to three additional years of undergraduate study or until you complete your degree, whichever comes first, as long as you maintain your Canadian study permit, demonstrate continued financial need, and maintain good academic standing in your faculty (student visa).
