Internal Funding

There are 4 main types of awards:

  • Exchange bursary (application required)
  • BISC bursary (application required)
  • Automatic Exchange and BISC Awards (no application required)
  • Study Abroad awards (application may be required)

If you are selected to receive an Exchange or BISC Bursary the name of your bursary may be amended to a Named Bursary. 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.

We encourage you to look on the Student Awards website at the named bursaries and automatic awards available as some of these are for students in particular disciplines and/or studying in certain countries.

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.
