International Major Entrance Scholarships (IMES) are awarded to exceptional international students entering undergraduate programs at UBC. Students receive their IMES when they enter their first year at UBC, and the scholarships are renewable for up to three additional years of study. The number and level of these scholarships awarded each year vary, depending on available funding.

For the 2024/2025 academic year, IMES awards will be valued at $10,000 – $20,000/year.


To be considered for the IMES, you must:

  • Be new to UBC, entering directly from secondary school.

  • Be an international student who will be studying at UBC on a Canadian study permit (student visa). (Changes to your citizenship status will affect your IMES eligibility.)

  • Demonstrate exceptional academic achievement and intellectual promise, as well as impressive extracurricular and community involvement.

  • Not be nominated for a need-and-merit-based International Scholars award.

"Everything was explained well to me by Vidushi. There was a 100% transparency in everything and Vidushi was highly responsive throughout the process making it smooth and hassle free for me. Rahul from the Visa team also was really patient in the entire process and made sure I understood and get things done timely."
