Other Funding Opportunities

International Experience (IE) Awards

The IE Awards are assessed based on your financial needs. These awards cannot cover the whole cost of your learning abroad experience but aim to support those in financial need with contribution toward their return flight and some living costs (where applicable). Please remember to budget carefully and plan in advance to make the most of your experience! 

IE awards are calculated based on your final destination, the duration of your stay, an average return airfare, and the difference in the cost of living between your destination and Toronto (where applicable). 

Please note that CIE is able to grant only one award per student and per year, with a maximum of $8000 over two years.  

IE Awards+

Students who decide to go on a learning abroad activity, such as research, courses, or professional experience, organized or coordinated by any division at UofT, will be able to be considered to receive an IE Award+.  

These awards are based on financial needs and adhere to the same conditions as the International Experience (IE) Awards. Please note that the IE Awards+ are not intended to cover program or tuition fees. 

Please note that CIE is able to grant only one award per student and per year, with a maximum of $8000 over two years.  

Summer Research Exchange Program (SREP)

Successful applicants under the Summer Research Program will receive funding to cover basic costs at the host institution. Funding is guaranteed for all students going under this program (up to $3000). 

When applying for SREP, applicants can opt to apply for an IE Award as well. If your application is successful, the IE will complement the fixed SREP award. 

Please note that CIE is able to grant only one award per student and per year, with a maximum of $8000 over two years.  

Summer Abroad

All course and other fees for the Summer Abroad programs are subject to Governing Council approval. A detailed breakdown of these fees is available in each program section of this site.  

The incidental fees charged for participating in a Summer Abroad program will be charged to each student’s ROSI/ACORN account (not the Professional and International Programs office). To review your fees invoice, log into your ROSI/ACORN account and click on “Financial Accounts”. The fee amount will vary according to each student’s enrolment status.
