Academic Travel Fund

Finger pointing at Europe on a map

The Academic Travel Fund assists students to undertake an experience that contributes to the individual’s academic direction towards research, graduate school, engaging with the academic community, or community-engaged learning. The fund provides financial assistance to students to undertake a non-credit-bearing academic travel experience.

Eligible expenses for which receipts are produced will be reimbursed up to $2,500 per student per award, and is not meant to cover 100% of costs.

For additional information, please see the guidelines.

Project proposals will be considered three times per year.

Deadline dates for the 2018-19 academic year: 

Round 1: Friday, October 12, 2018
Round 2: Friday, January 11, 2019
Round 3: Friday, March 1, 2019

Additionally, students awarded funds to travel outside of Canada are required to attend a Pre-Departure Orientation Session offered through the Safety Abroad Office.

Please contact the International Student Centre at isc@utsc.utoronto.ca for information on registering for a session.

Applications for any United Nations-related trips will no longer be accepted.

This initiative is an attempt to address the financial need of students, in support of academic travel.
