Undergraduate Forestry students are eligible for a range of assistance including prizes, scholarships, bursaries, and loans. Prizes and scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic standing although other factors may also be considered. Many scholarships are awarded on the recommendation of the Faculty, while others are assigned by Enrolment Services.
The University also offers bursaries to students demonstrating financial need. These awards are assigned by Enrolment Services and students are required to submit a detailed application outlining their financial circumstances. Bursaries to Forestry students amount to about half the value of scholarships and prizes. The major source of financial assistance is available through the British Columbia Student Assistance Program, which combines a Canada Student Loan and a BC Student Loan. Details on these programs and information on financial assistance can be found at students.ubc.ca (students.ubc.ca).
