The Government of Canada’s Veterans Education and Training Benefit is designed to help Canadian veterans achieve their education and career goals. If you’re a Canadian veteran, you may be eligible to receive up to $80,000 in funding toward a UBC degree.
To be eligible for the Veterans Education and Training Benefit:
The value of the benefit will vary depending on your length of service: $40,000 for at least six years of service and $80,000 for at least 12 years of service.
Choose a degree, review your admission requirements, and apply to UBC by January 15. Your admission requirements will vary, depending on whether you’re a mature student or a transfer student from another university or college.
Once you receive an offer of admission from UBC, submit a Veterans Education and Training Benefit application to Veteran Affairs Canada.
