How Do I Fund An Award?
You can fund an award at UBC through an endowment or on an annual basis.
You can choose to fund an award on a year-to-year basis with an annual gift. If you choose to establish an ongoing award annually, an initial commitment of at least three years and a financial commitment of at least $10,000 is required.
|Award Type||Minimum Donation|
|Scholarship / Bursary / Award||$2,000 (for 5 years)|
|Renewable Entrance Awards for Undergraduate Students||$10,000|
|Renewable Entrance Awards for International Students||$50,000|
An endowment supports your award in perpetuity. The university uses only the investment income generation by the capital to provide the award yearly. In this manner, the fund begins to build for the future, enabling the value of the award to increase over time.
Suggested minimums for establishing named award endowments are as follows:
|Award Type||Suggested Minimum Donation|
|Scholarship / Bursary / Award||$50,000|
|Renewable Entrance Awards for Undergraduate Students||$250,000|
|Renewable Entrance Awards for International Students||$1,500,000|
