The fund provides financial assistance to students to undertake a non-credit-bearing academic travel experience.

This fund offers expense reimbursement and is not a guaranteed grant. 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. Eligible expenses include registration fees, travel transportation (flights and on the ground transport) and accommodation related expenses only.
