Francine Cunningham, who is working on her MFA in creative writing, was one of 32 award recipients from UBC.

Thirty-two UBC students are among the 167 Aboriginal students in B.C. who have been awarded scholarships by the Irving K. Barber British Columbia Scholarship Society. The Irving K. Barber British Columbia Scholarship granted a total of $459,000 to support students studying at post-secondary colleges and universities throughout the province. UBC had more recipients than any other post-secondary institution.

The awards range between $1,000 and $5,500 and are issued to students through a competitive process every year. Twenty-three of this year’s 167 awards are from a new fund established to support Aboriginal students pursuing certification as teachers.
