Scholarships for Students Going on Exchange

Due to the COVID 19 pandemic, Memorial has suspended university-related travel only. Applications will not be accepted/reviewed until the travel ban has been lifted.

Study Abroad - 2020/21 (for travel between May 1, 2020 and April 30, 2021)

The Arthur and Sonia May Scholarship and the Coca-Cola Scholarship for International Studies are two travel scholarships available to students who have:

  • completed at least two years of a degree program at MUN;
  • are accepted to attend a recognized university outside Canada for one or two semesters of study for transfer credit back to Memorial and
  • have scholarship standing. For undergraduate students, it is defined as a 75% average at the end of two out of the last three semesters at Memorial University in the previous scholarship year and the successful completion of not less than thirty credit hours in those two semesters. Students who fail one or more courses in a scholarship year will not be eligible for scholarships.

The Scotiabank Bursaries for International Study is available to full-time Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences students who are participating in one of the overseas Field Schools or study abroad programs through the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences. Students must also have scholarship standing to be considered for this funding opportunity as well.

Applications are available for download and paper copies are available in A - 1002.  The deadline to apply is listed on the application.

(Note: Not all students who meet the above definitions of scholarship standing will receive a scholarship)
