Before you dive in, take a moment to review the program eligibility requirements and how to apply.
how to apply
1. Review the program details and the list of opportunities
Read all the information on this page and in the Fall 2020 Application Guide to make sure you understand the eligibility requirements and how the program works.
2. Update your resume and cover letter
You may apply for up to three different opportunities. Please make sure your resume is up-to-date and that you customise your cover letter for each opportunity that you’re applying for. Applying to the Scholars Program is competitive so it’s worthwhile to give yourself extra time to polish your cover letter and resume.
3. Prepare your application
You will need to provide a separate resume and cover letter for each opportunity. You will also need to provide a list of references. Your cover letter, resume, and references must be saved as one PDF document, using the following naming convention: Project number_First name_Last name.pdf (e.g., 2020-072_Jenny_Smith.pdf).
4. Submit your application online
Be sure to apply by midnight September 20. Please subscribe to the UBC Sustainability Newsletter to make sure you receive notices about future opportunities.
