Undergraduate Research Fellowships
About the gift
Stober Family Foundation will help students in every discipline succeed
With the physical and mental wellbeing of UBC Okanagan students and the community top of mind, the Stober Family have donated $1 million to support student scholarships, research and community health initiatives over five years. The gift comes during a pivotal period of growth for the campus. More than half of the generous gift will be matched by Aspire, a fundraising initiative, which will create a total of $1.9M of needs-based and merit-based scholarships for students.
Within the School of Health and Exercise Sciences, a $500,000 gift will establish the Stober Foundation Health Fund, which will help recruit the next generation of health scientists.
