International experience awards

All University-sanctioned international travel is suspended until further notice due to COVID-19. As a result, the international experience award program is suspended during this time.

Once Government of Canada and University of Waterloo travel suspensions are lifted, then the international experience award program will return.

Our typical award deadlines are:

  • July 15 for Fall travel

  • November 15 for Winter travel

  • March 15 for Spring travel

Please check back again prior to your anticipated deadline.
