Scholarship Value/Inclusions/duration:

Your Karen McKellin International Leader of Tomorrow Award is worth according to how much money you need.

The amount of money you and your family can provide each year is deducted from the total tuition, fees, and living expenses to calculate your financial need.

The financial data you and your family submit is the foundation for a specific needs analysis.

Your award may be extended for up to three more years of undergraduate study or until you have earned your degree, whichever comes first, provided you maintain a satisfactory academic standing in your department, continue demonstrating financial need, and keep your Canadian study permit (student visa).


To be eligible for the Karen McKellin Foreign Leader of Tomorrow Award, you must be a foreign student enrolled in Canadian academic programs with a valid study permit from that country.

 • You must transfer from your first year of a post-secondary college or another university or have graduated from a recognized secondary school to enrol at UBC.

 • Two years before the academic year you are applying for, you must have graduated from high school in June. For instance, candidates for 2024 must have completed their high school education no sooner than June 2020.

 • Your application must be for your first undergraduate degree.

 • You must exhibit exceptional academic achievement (all As or standards equivalent).

 • You must Meet UBC’s entrance standards, including general and degree-specific requirements and the English Language entrance Standard.
