The academic school sets additional eligibility criteria, where applicable. The academic school promotes the opportunity and provides deadlines (in consultation with the International Education Office). Students complete and submit an application to the International Education Office, who review it for eligibility and forward to faculty. Faculty members shortlist applications, followed by interviews. The International Education Office submits paperwork to students for completion. Financial Support Students selected for an education abroad opportunity may be eligible for a travel bursary of up to $1,500 CAD. Students may also be eligible for OSAP funding.
