The Catholic Colleges of UBC need your strong support –
now more than ever.
Unlike Colleges like Langara, and universities like UBC and SFU, Catholic Colleges are not eligible for provincial government funding in British Columbia. Elementary and secondary schools do receive partial funding, but Catholic higher education does not.
We count on the generosity of our sponsors and donors to make Catholic higher education in Vancouver not only a reality, but also accessible to as many students as possible.
We are committed to affordable and accessible post-secondary education and offer scholarships, bursaries, and grants to help ensure no deserving student will be turned away from pursuing their academic aspirations.
“From the moment he began his studies at Corpus Christi College, my son was met with enthusiasm, welcome and warmth. I believe that the smaller classes, the personalized attention from professors and academic advisors and access to the resources and amenities of the University of British Columbia are the key to enabling students to succeed.”
—Susana Metcalfe, parent of Corpus Christi alumnus who successfully transferred to UBC
“Life was stressful, until I learned that I received the bursary. It felt as if a huge weight had been lifted off my shoulders.”

“It’s a pleasure for me to affirm once again my personal support and that of the Archdiocese to the great cause of Catholic higher education in our local Church. St. Mark’s College and Corpus Christi College, under the able and proven leadership of Dr. Peter Meehan, are essential not just to the well-being and vibrancy of the Catholic Church, but to the wider community as well.
Vancouver Catholics are extraordinarily generous people to whom has fallen the task of truly ‘building up the Church’ spiritually but also materially. This task continues. I hope that you will join me in ensuring that the Colleges will ‘be at the forefront of the Church’s dialogue with culture’ and the modern world.”
—J. Michael Miller, CSB, Archbishop of Vancouver
