iSchool Student of the Year

The Arts Co-op Program has a Student of the Year Award for co-op students in the UBC School of Information. Two annual awards of $1000 are available: one to a MLIS or dual student (who used their MLIS background on the co-op job) and the other to a MAS or dual student (who used their MAS background on the co-op job).

These annual awards recognize outstanding achievement in all aspects of the UBC iSchool co-op student’s performance, including academics, the workplace, and professional/community involvement. The awards will be given by the Associate Dean of Arts, Students, based on the advice of the Arts Co-op Advisory Committee and will be noted on the award recipients’ transcripts.
