Blue & Gold leaves a lasting impact

You changed their world, now watch them change ours

We raised more than $211-million to help UBC students reach their full potential. The Blue & Gold Campaign for Students wrapped up on March 31, 2022, but the impact of giving on the lives of students will last a lifetime.

So many exceptional students are unable to pursue their dreams due to financial constraints. However, generous donors have offered life-changing opportunities to many students, including those from under-represented communities, through fellowships, scholarships, bursaries, and awards.

The impact of your giving will continue long after the campaign close. We have a commitment to ensuring that deserving students who want to pursue an education at UBC can be here and that extraordinary scholars receive the recognition they deserve.

The Blue & Gold Campaign for Students helped create a pathway for a new generation of leaders that reflects Canada’s rich diversity.

Thank you from UBC students
