BEd teacher candidates are eligible for a number of scholarships and awards, most of which are based upon recommendations submitted for meeting outstanding program or practicum success criteria by instructors and practicum faculty advisors.
A small number of admission awards are based upon GPA only. For the 12-month options, awards decisions are made at the conclusion of the program. For the 2-Year Elementary option, scholarships are awarded at the end of Year 1, and prizes are awarded at the end of Year 2. The faculty also recognizes outstanding work in the extended teaching practicum. Teacher candidates do not apply directly for awards.
The UBC Faculty of Education Alumni Teacher Award was established to highlight the significant impact UBC teacher education graduates are having on teaching and learning in schools throughout BC, Canada and beyond.
