Musqueam UBC Student Scholarship
Musqueam students attending the University of British Columbia (UBC) are encouraged to apply to the Musqueam First Nation Scholarship. This award was created to acknowledge the strong relationship between Musqueam and UBC. It is a community-based scholarship for undergraduate, post baccalaureate (including medicine, dentistry, law, education, pharmacy, nursing, mid-wifery, and social work), and graduate students.
The award is valued up to $5,500 annually and renewable for up to 4 years.
Recipients will have demonstrated academic and leadership achievements including, but not limited to, engagement in the arts, athletics, school, and/or their community. Recipients will be selected on their ability to demonstrate their openness to continuing to learn who they are, where they come from, and their responsibility in enriching and carrying knowledge forward in their community and the world.
Deadline: September 16th, 2020 at midnight
