One of my friends who graduated last year won the MES for UBC.
40k.. crazy!
On top of her 5+ other scholarships.. @____@
Commerce students are insane.
Plus she had an average over 94 and was a Scouts leader, club leader.. and spent her whole summer in Africa saving children!
Goooood luck to everyone who applied this year, I have a few friends nominated from my school this year and they've got some impressive ECs!

Was there a required form where we had to state our financial situation? Because I applied for the UBC-okanagan one and on the pdf, we could only fill out the student declaration,essay, and declaration of activities...

The MES one. So I guess I'm good. Had a little heart attack when I thought I missed filling out something.

I applied for this scholarship! They only nominated two people from my school and I was lucky enough to be one of them

Does anybody know how many of these scholarships they give out each year?

My current average (including interim marks) is about 95.5%. I also have decent EC's and awards. I'd be happy if I received $5000! :D But my main goal is to get into Sauder

Wow, that sounds impressive! I've applied too, but I'm pretty sure others will beat me to it since it is nationwide.

I was nominated for this award last year (although I didn't accept the nomination, because UBC wasn't my school of choice). I carried a 98% average through grade 12, and I was on Grad Committee, Student Council, plus a bunch of other clubs, I volunteered in the community, worked with kids, and held a job. I actually ended up winning this award from the school I attend now. Not to be a downer, but this is what you're up against.

You'll get at least 1k for having a 86, I believe.
And the amounts go up from there depending on your average
