Funding your field placement

Student Awards & Financial Aid has created a list of awards specifically for international experience and travel. There are also other awards and scholarships, as well as bursaries (which are based on financial need, not academic achievement), that you may also apply.

The St. Paul’s International Development (INDEV) Fellowship is available to all students in good standing, and is valued at approximately $3,000. Also, INDEV students are eligible to apply for a number of international experience awards and scholarships administered by the University of Waterloo, ranging in value from $1,000 to $3,000.

St. Paul’s also offer up to 4 scholarships every year to students entering the INDEV program. These scholarships pay $10,000 over the four years of the degree. Learn more about St. Paul’s International Development Continuing Scholarship.

Students are eligible to apply for Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) loans, or the equivalent student assistance loan program in other Canadian provinces, to cover educational costs. The field placement fee is an OSAP-eligible expense, as are any other program-related expenses.
