* Students participating on an official University of Alberta exchange program remain enrolled at the U of A for the duration of the exchange and are therefore eligible for all UofA student awards and bursaries as well as Canada and Alberta student loans. In addition, there are a few scholarships and awards available specifically to help fund exchanges, either in general or to a specific destination. Please see the Financial Assistance section for more information.
