Travel Grants

As of December 15, 2021, the Government of Canada has reinstated the level 3 travel advisory to avoid all non-essential travel. As a result, and in keeping with the University’s Safe International Travel Policy for students, all student travel outside of Canada will be suspended until the travel advisory is lifted.

We're committed to seeing that University of Guelph students have the opportunity to experience different cultures and communities and provide experiences to enhance learning experiences. Travel grants are used to offset additional costs like airfare, vaccinations and travel insurance costs that are associated with travelling.

Undergraduate students should review the list of travel grants available by using the Undergraduate award search.

Graduate students should review the list of travel grants available in the Graduate award search. Graduate students must be registered full-time to be eligible for all internal awards unless otherwise stated in the specific award qualifications.


Exchange or Semester Abroad

Students on an Exchange program or Semester Abroad will have their travel grant applied directly to their student account to reduce the amount owed to the University for tuition and fees for the semester in which the travel will occur.

Conference, Field Course, Volunteer Opportunity or Co-op Work Term

Travel grants for field trips, conferences, etc will be issued to the student by direct deposit provided that there is no outstanding debt to the University.
