Scholarships for Students Going on Exchange


The Government of Canada has issued a global travel advisory to avoid non-essential travel outside of Canada. Memorial is suspending all non-essential university-related international travel until further notice for all faculty, staff and students. Members of the university community with previously confirmed plans for non-essential university-related travel outside Canada are asked to connect with their unit’s dean, director or department head. For students currently on university-related trips or with pending travel, please contact your unit head who will provide direction.

Study Abroad - 2021/22 - At this time, we are not accepting applications for study abroad from January 1, 2021 to April 30, 2021 (Winter 2022) only. Details to follow for study abroad opportunities beyond 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 

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 these three funding opportunities.

Scholarship standing for the 2021-2022 scholarship year for undergraduate students is defined as a 75% average over the previous scholarship year and the successful completion of not less than 30 credit hours over that period. In considering students who complete more than 30 credit hours, the average on the actual number of credit hours taken will be reviewed. Students who fail one or more courses during the previous scholarship year regardless of the number of courses completed, will not be eligible for scholarships.

For the 2021-2022 scholarship year, for students who do not meet the above definition because of scheduled internships or equivalent or work terms, scholarship standing is defined as a 75% average on the academic work completed in the previous scholarship year in which they must have been enrolled as regular full-time Co-op students. Those who fail an academic course, internship or equivalent, or work term during the previous scholarship year will not be eligible for scholarships.

APPLICATIONS are available for download and paper copies are available outside the office door -  A - 1002.  The deadline to apply will be updated when study abroad is permitted.

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

Faculty Opportunities

Students going on exchange are advised to consult their home faculty regarding faculty-specific travel and/or international study scholarships.  You can also schedule a meeting with a mobility coordinator.
