Apply for financial aid

There are several sources of funding available to support students pursuing a PACS 390 Internship credit.

Peace and Conflict Studies & Conrad Grebel University College

Through generous donor support, the PACS department and Grebel are able to provide financial support to students pursuing internship experience for PACS 390 credit. This will be allocated during the approval process once you have submitted your proposal. Funding amounts typically range from $500 to $3000 and will vary depending on the location and duration of your placement.

William Dick PACS Field Study Award

This award supports and promotes the PACS Field Studies program among students at Grebel and those pursuing studies at University of Waterloo. Financial support for students will also aid the work of the agencies for which they volunteer.

You do not need to submit a separate application for this award, but will be considered for it at the same time your proposal is reviewed.

Recipients will be chosen using the following criteria:

  • Students pursuing a PACS concentration.
  • Students accepted for PACS Internship program and placement with an non-governmental organization (NGO) that does not provide adequate funding.
  • Students holding at least an upcoming one term residence contract at the college, with consideration given to students who have had at least 2 previous terms in residence, may be given priority.
  • Students with financial need, may be given priority.

University of Waterloo

The University of Waterloo also has several awards available to assist students planning to participate in international work or study experiences.
