UBC MEL MHLP Professional Leadership Master Degrees

Scholarships

UBC does not offer scholarships, awards and grants to students in professional postgraduate programs like the MEL and MHLP. However, there are external sources of funding that you may be eligible to apply for and receive. Each year, our team reviews thousands of potential funding sources, and we encourage you to review the list of awards below and apply for those where you match the eligibility criteria. The application deadlines are year-round, so do your research ahead of time so you don’t miss out on potential opportunities. For many scholarships, you do not need to be admitted to a program to apply, but you will need to prove your enrolment to receive funds.
