The Faculty of Education’s Development & Alumni Engagement office works with donors and alumni to help facilitate philanthropy in areas of meaning to them, while enhancing the student learning experience, research excellence, and community engagement in pursuit of UBC’s Place and Promise, and the Faculty of Education’s Strategic Plan.
If there is an area of education you would like to support now or in the future, we welcome a conversation to learn more about your wishes and interests.
Faculty of Education Bursary
The Faculty of Education Bursary was established by UBC to help students bridge the gap between assessed need and available government funding. It’s an important initiative towards ensuring that all students have the opportunity to pursue their dreams and goals through higher education, regardless of their economic backgrounds.
Support for this bursary will ensure that more students have the opportunity to fulfill their professional and academic ambitions through quality programs that have served the international education community for more than 50 years.
Dean of Education Scholarship
With the cost of living on the rise, and by ensuring education students have access to the best programs possible, the Dean of Education Scholarship helps keep education accessible and affordable to talented students.
For education students, the Dean of Education Scholarship is a chance to go beyond the books and become a transformative teacher – someone who understands education is process of encouragement, engagement, trust and mutual respect.
Support for the Scholarship has been inspiration, and the Faculty hopes to grow the fund over the coming years to help even more students. By contributing to the Dean of Education Scholarship, you can help UBC build a brighter future by providing tomorrow’s teachers with the skills they need today.
UBC Alumni NITEP Scholarship
Over the past four decades, over 37O students have graduated and gone on to work in all areas of education from classroom teachers in public, private and band schools, to elementary and high school administrators, as well as holding positions with the provincial government and numerous First Nations educational organizations.
NITEP graduates are truly making a difference in the lives of Indigenous children and youth throughout BC. Help to honor this amazing legacy by contributing to the UBC Alumni NITEP scholarship that has been endowed by the UBC Alumni Association to assist NITEP students and ensure their success for many decades to come.
