What the Award Is: The University of British Columbia’s (UBC) Canada International Leader of Tomorrow (ILOT) Award honours international students who have excelled in the classroom, exhibited leadership qualities, participated in student government and volunteer work, and achieved recognition in extracurricular activities like the performing arts, sports, debating, creative writing, or external academic competitions and exams.
Based on the financial data that students and their families supply, a standard needs assessment is conducted.
Canadian University of British Columbia
Type: Taught to undergraduates
Award candidates must be nominated by the high school they are currently enrolled in, have just graduated from, or are transferring from.
Selection criteria and eligibility are as follows. For the International Leader of Tomorrow Award to be given:
You must be an international student who has been granted a study permit to study in Canada.
You must have graduated from a secondary school, college, or other university that is accepted by UBC.
Your application for your first undergraduate degree must be submitted.
The English Language Admission Standard as well as general and degree-specific requirements are among the requirements for admission to UBC.
You must show that you have achieved academically (at least an A average or equivalent standard).
You must show that your financial situation is such that it would otherwise preclude you from obtaining a degree at UBC.
Numerous scholarships are available.
Costs of tuition, fees, and living expenses less the annual financial contribution that the student and their family may make to cover these expenses constitute the value of a scholarship.
The International Leader of Tomorrow Award may be extended for a maximum of three more years of undergraduate study, or until the student completes their degree, whichever comes first, providing they continue to demonstrate financial need and maintain their Canadian study permit (visa).
