International Experience (IE) Awards

When applying for a CIE exchange, you can opt to apply for an International Experience Award as well. International Experience (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 a 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.

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 $3,000).

When applying for SREP, applicants can opt to apply for an International Experience Award (see above). If your application is successful, the IE award 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.

To apply for funding for an exchange organized through CIE, you only need to apply for your exchange. You will be able to opt for funding then.
