UFV Financial Aid Award Guide


Student speaker

Every year, one student from the Faculty of Education, Community, and Human Development will be selected to represent all students at Convocation with an address as student speaker. It is a great honour to be selected as Convocation speaker and the nominee is a well-rounded student with excellent public speaking skills. Nominations are gathered every year by the School of Education from faculty, mentors and teacher candidates, and a final nominee is recommended to a UFV-wide committee. The selected individual receives an honorary certificate, a letter from the dean of the faculty, and is featured in the Convocation booklet.

Lieutenant Governor General Bronze Medal

One student at UFV is selected each year for this prestigious award. The criteria are diversity and inclusion with a specific emphasis on democracy and reconciliation.
