DFATD Short‑Term Exchange Program, 2020‑21

Posted by Jaq-Lin Larder on February 10, 2020 in Research Funding

The 2020-21 competitions for the Short-Term Exchange Program (SEP), funded by the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development (DFATD), are now open. The SEP provides students and faculty from selected Latin American and Caribbean countries with research or study scholarships at Canadian universities. It is divided into four sub-programs:

Specific details for each sub-program, and links to further information, are provided above. 

Awards are offered to both undergraduate and graduate students – and in the case of the Canada-CARICOM Faculty Leadership Program, to faculty and staff. However, please note that in order to bring an undergraduate to Dalhousie under the Program, there must be a formal exchange agreement already in place between Dalhousie and the student’s home institution. For graduate students and faculty members, it is desirable (but not mandatory) that such exchange agreements be in place. For a list of Dalhousie’s existing exchange agreements, please visit the International Centre’s website.

Please note that foreign students and faculty cannot apply directly for these awards. As in previous years, Dalhousie applications to the SEP will be facilitated by the Office of Research Services. Any faculty member interested in applying to any of the programs is asked to contact Danielle Andres (, for more information.
