Scholarship Winner Begins her UBC Path in Vantage One Program

Meet ChaeEun Lee, Excellence Scholarship winner in Vantage One 2015/2016. ChaeEun is from Jeonju, Korea, where she attended Branksome Hall Asia for high school. During her time there, her high school math teacher, a UBC alumni, spoke highly of his time at UBC, and inspired ChaeEun to consider UBC.

Currently living in Totem residence, in the brand new q’ələχən House, ChaeEun arrived in Vancouver on August 10th 2015, and participated in UBC’s Jump Start orientation. She appreciates Vancouver’s clean air and lush greenery. Within the Vantage One program, ChaeEun studies in the Science stream, and intends to pursue a career as an IB international high school teacher in science studies. Her favourite course so far in Vantage One Science is Chemistry 121 with Lecturer Anka Lekhi.

The Excellence Award is a significant scholarship offered by the Vantage One program at UBC, ranging in value up to the full cost of the student’s academic program, renewable to a maximum of three years. We extend a warm welcome to ChaeEun, and congratulations for being our Excellence Award winner for the 2015/2016 year! Tuum Est.
