  1. Be a new UBC student directly from secondary school.
  2. Be an international student with a Canadian study permit.
  3. Showcase exceptional academic achievement, intellectual promise, and involvement in extracurricular and community activities.
  4. Not be nominated for a need-and-merit-based International Scholars award.
  5. Apply to UBC by January 15.

Application Process

Applicants applying to UBC by January 15 are automatically considered for IMES.

Scholarship Status

IMES decisions are made between mid-March and the end of April annually, shortly after receiving an offer of admission to UBC.
