Financial Assistance for International Opportunities

Going abroad can be expensive. If cost is a concern, have a look at some of the available scholarships and awards provided or administered by Laurier as well as external awards. Please note information related to awards changes on an ongoing basis, so it is best to review the information found on Loris or the external scholarship websites. 

Laurier Global Skills Opportunity (GSO) Travel Grants

Laurier International is offering two funding opportunities for undergraduate students participating in Laurier-sanctioned international mobility programming:

  1. The Laurier GSO Travel Grant: Inclusion Award will increase international mobility participation to those traditionally underrepresented including students who are Indigenous, disabled, and/or have low income.
  2. The Laurier GSO Travel Grant: Non-Traditional Countries Award will financially support students who participate in a Laurier-sanctioned international mobility program to any location other than United Kingdom, United States of America, France or Australia. 

You may apply to both GSO travel grants if you are eligible for both. If you are selected for an award you can only receive one award, and you'll be granted the award with the highest value.

If you receive an award, you'll be notified by email about a month after the application deadline. Funds will be deposited directly into your Laurier account. If you did not receive an award you then will not receive an email.

In addition to the below, some of our Laurier international exchange partners offer scholarships for incoming international students. While looking into this you can also do some more research into local service clubs and awards or bursaries they may offer. It doesn’t hurt to ask!
