Donald A. Wehrung International Student Award

The Donald A. Wehrung International is designed to help international students from war-torn countries, impoverished countries who have continually attained academic excellence despite the despicable environment in which they find themselves. This goes without saying that international students who cannot further their education to a higher level due to a lack of finances can apply for this scholarship scheme. However, whatever the value the Donald A. Wehrung International Student Award is willing to offer you, this has to be in proportion to your own financial capabilities. They come in to help and cover your financial need which is sufficient to cover your living expenses and tuition cost of study.

The host institution that solely funds this scholarship is the University of British Columbia Canada. That is to say, you have to actually have an admission from this said school to be offered the scholarship. The scholarship location is in Canada. However, it is not specified at this time the number of awards that international students have at this time. To get into the school, applicants should endeavor to have eligible undergraduate degrees that are offered them by the UBC.

Worth of Awards/Duration

As earlier stated, the value the Donald A. Wehrung International Student Award is willing to offer you, has to be in proportion to your own financial capabilities.
