International Leader of Tomorrow Award 2018 at The University of British Columbia

International Leader of Tomorrow Award winners receive awards proportional to financial need. Financial need is determined by tuition, fees, and living costs, minus the financial contribution you and your family can make annually. A standard needs-assessment is based on the financial information provided by you and your family. The International Leader of Tomorrow Award can be renewed for up to three additional years of undergraduate study or to degree completion, whichever is less. Your award may be renewed provided you achieve satisfactory academic standing in your faculty, continue to demonstrate financial need, and maintain your Canadian study permit (student visa).




  • Earn a globally recognized degree at a top university
  • Study with the brightest students in the world
  • Make the most of your degree


To be considered for an International Leader of Tomorrow Award, you must:

  • Be applying for your first undergraduate degree
  • Be admissible to the first-choice degree you are applying to, including meeting UBC’s English Language Admission Standard
  • Have an excellent academic record (at least an “A” average or equivalent standard)
  • Be an international student – neither a Canadian citizen nor a permanent resident of Canada – and be studying in Canada on a Canadian study permit (student visa)
  • Demonstrate a level of financial need that would otherwise prevent you from pursuing a UBC degree
  • Be entering a UBC undergraduate degree program from a recognized secondary school, college, or other universities
