It’s been long overdue, but today we’re releasing statistics on the 2016 (Winter Session) bursary at the University of British Columbia.
Admittedly, there isn’t much analysis to be done, a shame to make this our first post. Some people have mentioned on reddit that this year’s bursaries were fairly generous, and given the rate of application, just over half received bursaries.
Basic Statistics (in an easier to read format):
- Applicant count: 6,608
- Awardee count: 3,878
- Rate of Awards: 59% of applicants received a bursary
- Total Bursaries dispensed: $16,984,926
- Average monetary Award per Awardee: $4,380
- Average monetary award per applicant: $2,570
