Internal Funding

There are 3 main types of awards:

  • Exchange bursary (application required)
  • BISC bursary (application required)
  • Automatic Exchange and BISC Awards (no application required)

If you are selected to receive an Exchange or BISC Bursary the name of your bursary may be amended to one of the following awards (indicated in the last column by "Yes, through the Exchange or BISC Bursary"). Please note that only the name of the award will change after a student has been selected; the value of the Exchange or BISC Bursary assistance will not change depending on the name of the award.

In some cases awards listed as available for exchange are also open to students participating on study abroad programs. Consult with the relevant departmental website and Student Awards for the most up-to-date information.
