Submission Deadline: January 15, 2023
Awesome deal! The University of British Columbia is pleased to present the 2023 Karen McKellin International Leader of Tomorrow Scholarship Award in Canada to all deserving applicants.
The Karen McKellin Foreign Leader of Tomorrow Award recognizes international undergraduate students who succeed in a variety of critical areas, including academics, leadership, involvement in extracurricular activities, and community service.
Your degree of financial need has a substantial bearing on the value of this Karen McKellin International Leader of Tomorrow Award. By totaling up your tuition, fees, and living costs, you can determine how much money you and your family may give each year. Based on the financial information that you and your family have provided, a typical needs analysis is constructed.
If you retain your Canadian study permit, demonstrate ongoing financial need, and keep up a strong academic standing in your faculty, your scholarship may be renewed for up to three more years of undergraduate study or until you get your degree, whichever comes first (student visa).

You must show that you have achieved academically (achieve all As or equivalent standard).
