Apply for funding

Complete the internal funding application form.
Step 2) You will also need a Academic Approval form or Letter of Permission.
If you do not have a Letter of Permission (if you are not taking classes at another university that will transfer back to Dalhousie), then you will need to also complete the Academic Approval form (examples include, co-op terms, Dalhousie classes with an international component, clinical placements, Dalhousie classes taught abroad, field work).
Download the Academic Approval form. To complete the form, you will need to have it signed by the person who is responsible for your international experience.

Funding Application deadline and criteria
All awards administered by the International Centre are the responsibility of the Funding Committee. The committee meets on a regular basis. This means that there is no deadline for funding applications, but there are two critical things to note:
1. Your application and supporting documentation must be fully complete and submitted prior to your departure.
2. The chair of the committee will go through your application to ensure everything is complete only if the application is submitted one month prior to your departure. This will allow you enough time to rectify any omissions. If you don't provide enough time in advance of your departure, we can't guarantee this check will be done, and you risk having your application rejected on the basis of being incomplete.
We recommend that you complete the funding application as soon as you are accepted into an international program.
When will I hear if my funding application is successful?
You will receive an email once the committee meets to review the files that have been submitted since the last meeting. If you just missed a meeting, this could mean that you will hear back about 6 weeks after submitting. If you happen to submit just before the meeting, you may hear back the very next week.
