About the Program

Beyond Tomorrow Scholars are engaged citizens and young leaders in the classroom, on campus, and in community, locally and globally.

Scholars are expected to participate in enriched and dedicated programming that is shaped by five pillars of success described below.

Wrap-Around Support and Programming

Programming involves personalized touchpoints with dedicated advisors, wrap-around cross-campus support, mentorship connections, workshops/sessions, retreats/conferences, self-directed initiatives, events and skill-building opportunities based on different year levels and outcomes to equip Scholars to prepare for life during and post-university.

Through priority on-campus housing, Scholars have a choice to live close to where they study and are eligible for travel grants to support their transition to/from UBC.
