UBC MED ’66 Memorial Bursary
In 2017, bursaries totalling $3,000 have been made available through an endowment by members of the Graduating Class of Medicine 1966 for medical students who demonstrate financial need. Originally established in 2007 to recognize the untimely passing of classmate Fred Scriver, the bursary also honours the memories of additional classmates who are no longer with us. The bursaries are in recognition of each classmate’s unique area of contribution and the unique challenges that life has brought. Bursaries are adjudicated by Enrolment Services.
Donations to the UBC MED ’66 Memorial Bursary honour the memory of your classmates who are no longer with us and thanks to your gifts, UBC graduates can make an impact that benefits our communities in BC and across the globe. In turn, many of our alumni go on to make gifts that continue the cycle of excellence for the next generation of students, teachers and researchers.
To give you an idea of cost for students to attend UBC Faculty of Medicine in 2017 versus when you were students.
Blue & Gold Campaign: Change their world so they can change ours
UBC recently launched the Blue & Gold Campaign. UBC students are each uniquely talented, but not all have the same opportunities. They are the next generation of leaders ready to create lasting and meaningful change and tackle the challenges that affect us all. Supporting these promising students today—so they are equipped to build a better tomorrow—is more urgent than ever. To support their success, UBC launched the Blue & Gold Campaign for Students, with the goal of raising $100 million in student support over three years. Learn more about the Blue & Gold Campaign.
