UNBC to Launch Canada 150 Scholarship

Monday, March 27, 2017 @ 9:22 AM

Prince George, B.C. – UNBC has announced it will launch a new scholarship program intended to attract international students to its campuses.

UNBC’s 150th Anniversary International Scholarship program will be comprised of 150 renewable scholarships valued at $2,000 per year for up to four years and will be available to students around the world.

The school says the scholarships will help to encourage and foster international education, improve social and cultural vibrancy on UNBC campuses and to celebrate Canada as a welcoming nation.

Students demonstrating leadership traits will be given special consideration.

UNBC president Dr. Daniel Weeks announced the scholarship at an event in Beijing where UNBC representatives were celebrating the Concord College of Sino Canada’s 20th anniversary.

That college offers Chinese and Canadian high school education curricula to more than 20,000 students across China.



Huh? There are no Canadian students needing financial help? To hell with “cultural vibrancy” on the campus, let’s make it affordable for the children of the working Canadian stiffs who have been paying for the ivory tower for more then a quarter of a century now.
