Nordic Sport Leadership Awards

Nordic Sport Leadership Awards

Application Deadline: May 1st

Full tuition award (up to $20,000)

This full tuition award is valued at $5000 per year and renewable for 3 years meaning that your university degree could be completely funded! This is a very prestigious award at UNBC, and has been made possible through the collaborative efforts of the Caledonia Nordic Cross Country Ski Club and the University of Northern British Columbia.

To be eligible, you must plan to be a full time undergraduate student, and have experience in training with cross country skiing or biathalon at a national level. Candidates with relevant high level coaching experience in at least one of these sports will also be considered.

This renewable entrance award will recognize and reward a student who is involved with the Caledonia Nordic Club while they pursue academic studies at UNBC. The recipient will demonstrate excellence through continuing athletic achievements and/or giving back to the sport through leadership, volunteer coaching and building varsity involvement in cross country skiing or biathlon.

Entrance Award ($1000)

A second award valued at $1000 is also available for an entering student that has experience in training or high level coaching in country skiing or biathalon. This award is not renewable for subsequent years.
