At the UBC School of Music, we have several scholarships and awards available for our undergraduate and graduate students.

Bernard Wigmore Cox Memorial Fund

Established in the loving memory of Bernard (Bernie) Cox (1929-2016) by his family in 2018. The fund provides financial support to UBC School of Music students who are members of the UBC Symphony Orchestra. $1,000 will be available each year to reimburse one or more deserving students for expenses related to the repair and maintenance of their instruments.

Joseph and Melitta Kandler Scholarship

An annual scholarship of $4500 has been endowed for a BMus student in their third or fourth year or a graduate student in the School of Music. The scholarship assists with the cost of pursuing advanced music training or research outside of Canada through a program of study approved by the school.

Johann Strauss Foundation — Lotte and John Hecht Memorial Scholarships

Established by the Johann Strauss Foundation, and augmented by generous annual support from the Hecht Foundation, the Strauss-Hecht Scholarships are available for advanced study of music at specified public or private institutions in Austria. We offer up to three $5000 scholarships annually.
