Experience Abroad Travel Grants

The Office of Experiential Learning is offering travel grants to allow students to develop a global perspective. The grants, made available through the Career Ready Experience Abroad Fund (EAF), are designed to support costs associated with student participation in study or work abroad learning opportunities.

The available funds are not expected to cover all expenses that will be incurred by a student participating in these opportunities. The Office of Experiential Learning experience abroad travel grants are available to all University of Windsor Students who are in good standing who will be completing a University of Windsor Study Abroad Course or who will be working abroad (outside of Canada) as part of their University of Windsor Co-operative Education or Internship placement. In order to obtain the funding, students must complete the study/work abroad experience between January 1, 2019 and September 1, 2019.

This will consist of a brief paragraph submission of how the study/work abroad experience has been transformative, what they earned and how it relates to their studies.

Conditions: Successful applicants will be expected to share how the study/work abroad experience has been transformative, what they learned and how it relates to their studies.
