Scholarships

If you are a Ukrainian Student studying at University of Ottawa, Carleton University or Algonquin College, or even if you are in your last year of high school, you are eligible for several scholarships. Feel free to contact us for more information at ouscweb@gmail.com.

Below is a list of Scholarships available to Ottawa students.

UCPBA Scholarship

Objective:

The Ukrainian Canadian Professional and Business Association of Ottawa awards up to two scholarships each year. Awards are made on the basis of academic merit and extracurricular accomplishments, in particular those contributing to the Ukrainian community. In some cases, financial need may also be taken into consideration in awarding the scholarship.

Applicants are evaluated for academic merit (transcripts, previous awards and scholarships), volunteer activities including those in the Ukrainian community and extracurricular activities. Applications are evaluated “blind”, that is, names and other information which could identify the applicant is not provided to the Scholarship Evaluation Committee.

Although Scholarship winners are not eligible to apply in the following year, unsuccessful Scholarship applicants are encouraged to apply each year. If the Scholarship Evaluation Committee deems that the scholarship applications received in a given year are not of sufficiently high quality, the Committee reserves the right not to award a Scholarship in that year.

ARE YOU ELIGIBLE TO APPLY?

To be considered for the UCPBA Scholarship, you must be a student who is:

  1. In your final year of high school (grade 12 or CEGEP) or be enrolled in a post-secondary educational program;
  2. A resident of, or attending school in, the National Capital Region (Ottawa-Gatineau);
  3. Between the ages of 16 and 30 as of December 31 this year.
