External AwardsExternal awards are scholarships, bursaries, fellowships, or prizes administered entirely by individuals or organizations outside The University of British Columbia. External award donors manage most aspects of such funding, including advertising, the establishment of award criteria, printing and distributing applications, the evaluation of candidates, winner selection, and the accounting of award monies. External donors can disburse funds in one of two ways:
- Funds may be forwarded directly to award recipients, with donors fulfilling Canada Customs and Revenue requirements for tax reporting themselves; OR
- When the recipient is registered at UBC, donors have the option of forwarding award funds through the University.
