The University of British Columbia has received $6M from BC government to help support students as they continue their postgraduate studies. The merit-based graduate student scholarship funding will provide 400 successful applicants from the university’s Okanagan and Point Grey campuses with $15K each. “We know that we are losing the best talent because of the affordability issues,” said BC Advanced Education Minister Melanie Mark. “The cost of education was out of reach for way too long.” UBC President Santa Ono noted that the scholarships will also help students cover the high costs of living near the two campuses.
