Administrative history

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 include student loans. Byron Hender served as the first director of the unit from 1974 to 1991 when he was succeeded by Carol Gibson who served in the position until 2001. Following a reorganization in 2002, the functions of the unit were divided between merit- and needs-based activities and these were reallocated between Student Recruitment, Admissions & Awards and Records, Registration & Student Financial Assistance respectively.
