Student International Opportunity Grant

The Faculty of Agricultural, Life & Environmental Sciences supports curricular and co-curricular international opportunities for students that integrate learning, discovery, and citizenship. The Student International Opportunity (SIO) Grant provides financial support for undergraduate students travelling internationally as part of a University of Alberta course or other academic opportunity.

The maximum grant is $1000 and will be awarded on a competitive basis. The success of the application and amount awarded will be determined by the quality of the proposal, how well the activity fits the criteria and the availability of funds.


All ALES undergraduate students participating in a course or academic activity involving international travel between September 1, 2018 and August 31, 2019 are eligible to apply.
