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. 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.
Stober Foundation PhD Fellowships
The Stober Foundation PhD Fellowship program funds four PhD Fellowships for four years. The Fellowships began 2021 with the generous support of $25,000 per year for four exceptional trainees in the PhD in Kinesiology program at UBC Okanagan. The Stober Foundation PhD Fellowship is designed to strengthen world-class health research taking place in the Okanagan.
Stober Foundation Undergraduate Research Fellowships (SURFs)
The UBC Stober Foundation Undergraduate Research Fellowships have been established as a catalyst for excellence in health research and undergraduate student training. This program funds Fellowships each year from 2021 through 2025. The SURFs are awarded to students to complete 12-16 weeks of research training. With the goal of attracting highly-talented undergraduate students from around the world, the fellowships introduce undergraduate students to world-class research opportunities at UBC Okanagan.
