Dates of existence



The Awards Office emerged in the mid-1970s at the University of British Columbia to administer student scholarship and bursary programs. In 1980 the name of the unit changed to Awards and Financial Aid, and its mandate extended to student loans. Byron Hender served as the first director of the Awards Office from 1974 until 1991. Carol Gibson, who served as director until 2001, succeeded him. Following a reorganization in 2002, the unit's functions were divided between merit and needs-based activities. These were reallocated between Student Recruitment, Admissions & Awards and Records, and Registration & Student Financial Assistance.
