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.
An ISHA 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 an ISHA 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.
English is the primary language of instruction at UBC. All prospective students are required to demonstrate a minimum level of English before they’re admitted.
If you’re interested in this award, ask your counselor to request a nomination package. Recognized international, community-based, and non-governmental organizations may also be able to make nominations.
