UBC scholarship program supports Black Canadian students at UBC

As we celebrate and recognize the achievements of so many Black Canadians this month, we are proud of the hard work and dedication currently underway at UBC by a group of ambitious Black students in the Beyond Tomorrow Scholars Program.  This scholarship is supported by donors and partners, including Black Opportunity Fund, which set up two awards for Black students to attend UBC. Academic benefits include access to opportunities for collaboration, leadership, and the exchange of ideas, both within the program and as students transition into life post-university.
