The University of British Columbia and Black Opportunity Fund (BOF) have partnered to provide support and opportunities to Black students at UBC. Through the partnership, students will be able to access a range of opportunities including awards, mentorship, internships, leadership conferences, and networking opportunities, as well as other opportunities to help them transition to life after graduation. BOF has also established two full-ride awards for Black students at UBC, and UBC is launching the Beyond Tomorrow Scholar Program to provide additional support and programming for Black Canadian students. “UBC is honoured to be working with Black Opportunity Fund to help give Black students access to a life-changing education,” says UBC President Santa J Ono.
