UBCO Heat Athletic Scholarship Breakfast – presented by RBC
The University of British Columbia provides students with more than a world-class education.
Our varsity athletics program at UBC's Okanagan campus features nationally recognized coaches, outstanding facilities, and high-quality competitive opportunities. With membership in both the U SPORTS (men's and women's basketball, cross-country running, soccer and volleyball), the Canadian Collegiate Athletics' Association (CCAA) (men's and women's golf), and club competition for men's and women's rugby, UBC's Okanagan campus is committed to post-secondary sport.
Our goal is attracting high-achieving students with the athletic ability required to be competitive at the national level. We recruit these students from within the Okanagan Valley, throughout the province and across the country. Our Athletics Scholarship Endowment helps us provide the financial assistance needed to support these outstanding UBC student athletes.
Be a part of the legacy.
2019's Featured speaker: Dr. Meghan Grant
Meghan is an example of the power of sport and exercise to change lives. From the young girl who was lost in gym class and was a sedentary and unhealthy medical resident less than 7 years ago, she built a life without limits and is now a physician in both Emergency and Sport Medicine who has represented Canada worldwide while on her bike.
A semifinalist in the most recent Canadian astronaut recruitment campaign and a co-founder of Leap Biosystems, Dr. Grant serves as an ambassador and athlete mentor through the RBC Olympians and the Classroom Champions programs. Come join us to hear Meghan’s story.
Funds raised through this annual event go directly to the Athletics Scholarship endowment at UBC’s Okanagan campus. Since 2006, the funds raised at the Athletics Scholarship Breakfast have supported more than 200 student athletes in achieving their academic and athletic goals.
