Removing Financial Barriers

UBC students are each uniquely talented, but not all have the same opportunities. They are the next generation of leaders ready to create lasting and meaningful change and tackle the challenges that affect us all. Supporting these promising students today—so they are equipped to build a better tomorrow—is more urgent than ever.

To support their success, UBC has launched the Blue & Gold Campaign for Students, with the goal of raising $100 million in student support over three years. And to get things started, UBC is providing matching funds of up to $5 million for new gifts to select Blue & Gold campaign priorities!

Support UBC’s new Blue & Gold Campaign for Students today. Your support gives promising students access to a life-changing education—and perhaps most importantly—invests in the future of our province and our global community.

Here’s How You Can Help Remove Financial Barriers for Talented Students:

Blue & Gold Bursary

UBC’s new endowed Blue & Gold Bursary will provide support for deserving students with demonstrated financial need.
