Mandatory Quarantine Program International Bursary
The University of Guelph is committed to supporting incoming international students. As part of this commitment, we are offering a one-time bursary to assist international students who are unable to afford all or part of the costs of the provincially mandated Mandatory Quarantine program, up to $2500.
The bursary is open to new and continuing international students (both undergraduate and graduate) enrolled in full-time studies at the University of Guelph during the Fall 2021 or Winter 2022 terms. To be reimbursed, students must have travelled to Canada by air on or after August 12, 2021. They must submit proof that they have enrolled in the University's Mandatory Quarantine Program, and completed the quarantine. The bursary will be applied against the student’s account. The application form is now available.
